Might it be Aseda - a very large glass or vase?
« on: September 04, 2009, 03:34:33 PM »
Hi,

Am sorting out our glass and naturally have come across a few which are still unidentified.

Not sure about this one, or even why I bought it? From what I can gather (my books, and this site), it may be ASEDA.  I am puzzled as to what it would be used for-It is quite large for a drinking glass- 7" tall.

Can anyone add a little more please.....??

TIA - M & S

I would say more likely Czech perhaps Borske Sklo; that clear glass is quite yellowish and I don't Aseda clear was.

Hi Christine

You have no idea how much that pleases me.  If I recall correctly, at the time of purchase, it vaguely reminded me of Borske, due to the patterning, and I have recently had a nice run on spotting and buying Borske Balls.

But I decided not to mention it in the original post for fear of looking silly, as this pattern is more criss-crossed.

Anyway took the vase/glass out in the daylight and it isn't as clear or white as it could be..... as you say.

Cant resist but to add a photo of my Borske's....

Thanks Sharron

Funny kind of hybrid vase...kind of Scandinavian bubbles, Czech style top with Empoli-ish flavour green and styling...  :-\

I believe this was made in Portugal.
