Czech or English posie vase? - ID = Stuart
« on: August 24, 2005, 09:59:49 AM »
Does anyone have any clue to the country of origin for this posie vase?  I bought it for £4, just to have something to think about and look up.   Now I've looked it up and thought about it, and have drawn a blank.   :lol:  :roll:

It's well made, and has the deep well at the base so often associated with Czech glass, but oooooh I don't know!  Could it be English? I particularly like the way it's bulbous at the base....hmm....maybe this is the piece I take after....  :wink:  :roll:  :D

Thanks for all your help, I have the feeling I might never nail this one down!  

I admit it does look Scandi, but it doesn't convince me in the flesh, so to speak.   I think I'd be more inclined towards English, but without a reference in a book, I'm a bit stuck!

I think this is 'one for the garage' until one day it pops up somewhere with a name tag.   :roll:  :)

Thanks again people.  xxx

Wow!  Thanks Anne!   :D  :D  :D

Fancy remembering my little posy dish - I'm touched!  xxxx

So he thinks it's Stuart?  I wonder if he'll respond if I try and drop him a line...worth a try eh?

Thanks so much again Anne - I didn't really think I'd ever see one the same, let alone be able to put a name to it!  

xxxx mwah!!!  {{{Anne}}}  :D  Yippeee!
