Possible Finnish blue modern vase.
« on: August 17, 2009, 07:05:05 PM »
I have tried looking, but been unsuccessful in seeing anything identical.  I'm led to believe this is Finnish  -  just over 20 cms. tall, and about 9 cms. at the widest.
seems to have a mould flattened base but with a neatly ground and polished pontil mark.    Some reasonable wear indicates not exactly made yesterday.  Any thoughts will be appreciated, and thanks for looking.    Paul S.

The colour and base remind me of the vase in this thread http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,27174.0.html.

Not much help, just a possibility.

thanks John  -  I have looked a little amongs the various suggestions, and you may be correct that Boda Afors may be a strong contender.   If I find a match, I will let you know, and thanks you help.   Cheers         Paul S.
