I have some doubts. The colour should be turquoise, not green - the height 8 cm the diameter 12. If different, it's back to the drawing board.

Ivo,

You observation made me think we needed to find one that had been attributed, and then I remembered Botterweg's auctions:

http://www.botterweg.com/Auction/Bid/tabid/59/auctionid/5/tag/Leerdam/lotid/611/language/en-US/Default.aspx

I think I'm happy that mine is the same as this :huh:, but I now don't know about David's - how much variation would there typically be in such bits ?

Not much - but some. Meijdam makes more sense than Copier, anyway.

My vase is definitely different in shape from the one in the Botterweg auction, less bulbous and a wider mouth  Also, mine has 18 ribs whereas the Botterweg seems to have 19   But doesn't the one in Ricke look very like the one in the auction, yet one is by Meydam and the other by Copier? Just for for reference and interest, I've included a copy of the page from Liefkes which shows Copier vases, Serica 44 and 45, with same technique, different shape, but the Serica 45 at least is in green

I've looked at the photographs of a few Franck pieces now and I'm fairly sure I can rule him out. The similarity of the colour, the texture, and the technique keep me coming back to Leerdam.

The best thing is to ask Willem Botterweg who is better documented than any of us.

Great suggestion. The email has been sent. I hope you don't mind I quoted your name and advice.

Hi,

This vase is definitely designed by Floris Meydam for Leerdam, from the same series as I had in previous auctions, and also in the auction that will start in about two weeks (Feb.12th'09, www.botterweg.com).
I do have a copy of the ca.1950 Leerdam catalogue which contains this particular series with serica numbers.
Especcially those numbers are important, because the A.D.Copier serica numbers ends at no.73, numbers above that are from the hand of Meydam.
For a long time this was not known, which explains the faults of both Marc Heiremans & Ricke.
Tomorrow I will try to get a copy of the catalogue page on the board, together with a photo of most of the models of these vases.

Willem Botterweg.

I confess I didn't expect such a prompt and informative reply.

Thank you so much, Willem.
