Purple Vase
« on: October 23, 2005, 09:15:30 AM »
I am so happy with this forum, that is, whether anyone can tell me about this purple vase I have. In my opinion it is very old. How can I verify that?

Looks like either Gullaskruf or Elme, Sweden. And old - the shape is very 1960s. To some of us that is old  :D  :D  :D

I have a similar vase and the neck seems 'sawed-off'.
Does a sawed-off neck say anything particular about vases (date, manuf.)?
