FOREIGN VASE ID HELP. - ID = VEB
« on: February 02, 2009, 04:24:30 PM »
Hi can anyone help with the id on this vase.. its 150mm in height and pressed in 2 pieces, it has a birdbath base
but I dont think its SKLO UNION not as nice quality. It has a circular mark embossed into base that reads FOREIGN
when read from above looking into the vase. My first thought was German maybe Lausitzer because I have a GENT
vase in the same colour.. any ideas thanks Paul.

I have the same vase in flint/clear with the same stamp.

The stamp is identical to that on a Lausitz "Florenz" vase that I have.  I also recall seeing it on a large bowl that also has an SG sticker (made by VEB Sachsenglas at the old Walther factory).

So are we dealing with a generic DDR stamp here?

Christine and all: its not the vase that was identified I think, but the circular FOREIGN mark: undoubtedly Ankerglas Bernsdorf or VEB Ankerglas Bernsdorf. Saxony. I dive into my catalogues right now and let you know. If it's for sale - please let me know - thank you!  :thup:

Guess, it's a PARIS of 1958 (VEB Ankerglas) I'm interested in a purchase for the museum :rn:
