Can anyone help to identify this vase?
« on: July 08, 2009, 11:14:50 AM »
Hi,

I recently got this in a secondhand store.  It has no other markings except for the Orrefors sticker.  Can anyone identify the maker and when it was produced?

Thanks!

... does the sticker look like it could have been peeled off an other item ?  ::)

No, it is definitely sticks fast to the vase and no signs of being torn and stuck there - at least to my untrained eye.   :)

I think this one is by Eda Glasbruk not by Orrefors and no, I can not explain the label.

Not the same technique I think - it is clear cased and has clear ornaments on the outside

 To me it looks similar to some of the pieces by Carlo Moretti. Here is  link...

That particular source is not always accurate. Note the use of satinato on two SHINY marble vases and marble on one satinato vase.

 I was not making any reference to the particular store, I was just saying that it reminded me of pieces by Carlo Moretti. I could use a different page for reference if you would like, as it was the designer and not the store I was talking about.
