Solifleur - Walther or Pukeberg? ID = Walther
« on: November 12, 2008, 05:45:05 PM »
Hi

Can anybody clarify wether this solifleur vase I have is by Pukeberg or Walther as I cant seem to find conclusive evidence of either.

Thanks Dave

some more:

you find them with matted surface of the protruding part, too.
there also is a rectangular version of the same design.

there are three sizes i have - 14, 11 and (i guess) 8cm, but i know that
another round solifleur design was made in 4 sizes - maybe this one, too?
i see them on flea markets here regularly, but i began to like them
rather recently, so i don´t have any twice so far...

regards,
dirk

So how do you tell the difference between Pukeberg and Walther solifleur's?

TC, i´m not sure if i understand your question the right way. do you mean this very
vase or solifleurs generally?

in case you mean this one:
i´ve googled ´pukeberg solifleur´ and got several links with walther vases attributed
as pukeberg - looks like the usual internet-virus to me: ´no proof?-make something up!´

in general:
to answer this or state characteristic differences would be beyond my knowledge, i´m
afraid. i think we´ll have to decide for each design by a) label or b) documentation seperately.

regards,
dirk

This vase i mean.

Miller's Glass of the '50's & '60's shows the same vase attributed to Pukeberg (11cm high).
