Bubble based vases revisited
« Reply #10 on: May 25, 2006, 07:54:18 PM »
I saw an amethyst one attributed to Rihiimaki somewhere online too Robbo (probably an assumption based on the similarity to the carafe you mention), but consensus here on the board was that it wasn't Rihiimaki. Quality is fairly reasonable, the glass is not as thick as the M&S vase but certainly thicker than the Eternalle one. It has some wear to the base - it doesn't appear to be very new, but no clues as to maker on it.

Peter, thanks for clarifying and thanks to Gareth for the contact details for Eternalle. It seems they are an importer from the range of stuff I've seen with their branding on it.

Two comparative shots for reference:
Left to right: Unknown in/out clear vase, M&S red vase, Eternalle clear vase - side view and bubble base closeup comparison.

Edited to add 3rd pic showing rim and comparative thickness of each one.

These are very common here too (Norway), I have seen one with a Hadeland sticker on it. (blue and clear)

I don't know if this is helpful or pertinent, but I posted a decanter with a pierced bubble base here a while back that was ID'd as Krosno.  Here's the thread:

Thanks Kristi. The Krosno ones are well-known, but some of the Chinese-made ones also seem to be getting ID'd as probably Krosno so this topic is to show some of the Chinese ones and how easy it is to be fooled by them. :)

hee hee, I didn't know any of them were Chinese!  And I only now notice that the thread was started way back in 2005.

I also found another bubble-based vase with a different shaped body but cannot find out who made this one-

I've seen this vase attributed to Bo Bergstrom, Aseda. Also, in Fire & Sea, p. 26, there are a couple of Bergstrom vases close in shape to this one. I can't remember seeing a clear example, though.

Kristi, it just shows we never give up on anything! ;D

David, thanks. I saw a coloured one attributed the same as well but not the clear one. It's very thin compared to the others which is what makes me leery.
