Nice amber/brown vase
« on: August 19, 2009, 08:36:41 PM »
Purchased this vase today and felt it looked a nice quality item with a nice weight and clear base and a fair amount of wear, Would anyone be able attribute it too a specific firm with a date of manufacture please? 73/4" tall 3.5" base 4" rim. Thanks for looking. :hiclp:

I'm never certain about these vases - the colour and general finish is right for Riihimaki but Aseda did produce something similar in shape.  I'll see if I can find anything in any of my books.
