Hi all, interested to know what colours the bullet vase came in please. Thanks, Sue. I want to collect them all (still saving for the Sklo book)

Officially the colour range is:

Clear, turquoise, dark green, spring green, amber, yellow, citrin, light blue, mid-blue, cobalt blue, rosalin, amethyst, lilac, smoke.
Although Rosice made black glass, I have not yet seen a Schrötter "Lens" vase in that colour, but would not be surprised if they eventually appear.

Regards,
Marcus

NOTE: These colour names come from a works catalogue, and Whitefriars colour names should NOT be applied to Sklo Union products. It is both misleading and erroneous to do so.

Hi Sue, just to let you know we're now referring to them as 'Lens vases' (I can't remember the exact reason now, I'm sure Marcus will explain it if necessary, but I think it's because there's another design known as the 'bullet').

Thanks all, the vase is this one pictured.  I had a read of all the info and understand now. I have 3 so far and a turquoise waisted vase too and have decided that these are keepers. Thanks, Sue

I have started to collect the variations in colour (due to ingredients used) now as well as the different sizes.

These lovely vases are a collectors dream!

I just got this Schrotter bullet vase today...  the colour, a very dark amber, almost orange, is the prettiest I've seen.  I'm a very happy woman.  ;D
