Anybody recognize this cranberry cut to clear vase? VSL?
« on: August 25, 2005, 12:35:00 AM »
Hi Folks,

   At first glance I thought this was Val St. Lambert but I don't have any reference material to prove it..It's 10 1/2 inches high..The glass is a 1/2 inch thick..It has a polished pontil and it's signed on the bottom..the letters look like "Vaes? Lamliey"..The last letter looks like a "y" or a "g"..That's why I don't think it's "Lambert"

The VSL sig can be sketchy and trailing off - I would not worry about it being anything else.

the shape is almost identical to the "Septime" vase which was in the catalogue until VSL closed in (was it 2002?) - except that the Septime is listed as 9"/230 mm and the cutting is different. So I think it could be quite recent...

There's significant wear to the base and some cloudiness in the interior bottom of the vase which leads me to believe that the vase is not of recent production....

thx!
