Max - master sleuth - could be right, looks like my cloak of mystery is being torn apart darn it...felt like being a little ethereal ( E word again) for the time being, but I'll come clean, it's Emmi, pain in the butt on the Whitefriars site!!!


Nice to meet you Emmi.  :)  I recognised your glass, and the friendly way about you.   :D

Max aka Gina off WF.com   :wink:

Just having a 'knobbly' thought, but Max's 'knobbles' seem to be in two rings around the vase, Emmi's appear to spiral around, whereas mine look totally random. Not sure if this is relevant?

Good morning all...have been looking around the web and seeing various glass vases similar to all those above - yours and mine - and getting a strong feeling these may all be Canadian - I might be barking up the wrong tree!!! but a lot of the shapes and colours are very similar.
Chalet glass, Alta glass, Lorraine 1 glass etc.  All these companies it seems had an Italian immigrant ( ex-murano?) workforce which explains some of the forms and shapes etc....so may be worthwhile to explore this further. Hope I'm not sending you out on a wild goose chase!  Emmi
