Hey, thank you Taylog1....it looks very similar...mine is slightly smaller than yours  12cms tall, 16 cms long and 9 cms wide.  Aperture 10cms by 2.5 cms. Weighs about 750 gms.  So looks like the next size down from yours.  I'll look into Leerdam.  thanks for your help.  emmi

At the time I thought maybe Whitefriars, but I think after the sale (to someone in Netherlands I think) we concluded probably Leerdam.

correct. That is a vase by Floris Meydam from 1954 made in clear and turquoise crystal. But only in these dimensions - 21.5x15x10

So.....mine is not a Leerdam Ivo?  I know it's smaller but the similiarities are huge!  Any more ideas? Emmi

can only confirm if it is in the book, and yours aint. Also the colour seems to be too brownish for Leerdam. i'm not saying it isn't I'm just saying it can not be confirmed.

I sent some photos of this to a Dutch dealer specialising in Leerdam, with all the dimensions etc. and he has confirmed it is from Floris Meydam for Leerdam c. 1954.  So, hopefully that is the firm conclusion??? Over to you Ivo.  Regards Emmi

P.S. The colour in the flesh is not at all brownish, it has a blueish/greyish tinge. Emmi

Thanks for that...but now I am even more confused - Ivo says NOT Leerdam because the size isn't in the book....a Dutch dealer says it is Leerdam....now it may be Holmegaard...what's a girl to do??  Does anyone want to buy it to relieve me of my problem???

It has a couple of light surface scratches to one side, and usual wear to base.

Couple of days ago, I labelled it up for a small fair I'm doing next week.
