Mottled green vase - Nazeing or other?
« on: April 06, 2009, 03:21:54 PM »
I've checked through previous threads in the hope that they would help me determine whether this vase is Nazeing or not and whether it ticks any of the right boxes mentioned previously.  I'm still undecided ::), but think I can now at least report some of the features which might sway it one way or t'other. 

It measures 6" high (measuring the actual side wall of the vase itself). 
Weight is approx. 255g.
Thickness of glass 2mm.
Clear glass base approx. ΒΌ" thick.
Slightly off-centre uneven pontil mark - fire polished - slightly rough to the touch on one side.
Rim - rounded outwards and fire polished (not safety rim).
Definately old judging by wear on base and not modern.

So, could it be a Nazeing "funnel" vase? (fingers crossed ;)) The shape looks to be okay  :huh:
Many thanks  :)

Almost certainly Anne, as we have a similar one in our Nazeing Glass Museum! Sadly not worth a lot on the open market but probably pre war 1929-1937 era, and we made many in different colours, both swirl, and bubbled.
