What a lovely piece of glass Formgiva, I love seeing glass I haven't seen before...er...does that makes sense?!  Looks like quite Czech to me, I like it!  Someone will be able to help you properly, I'm sure.  :)

You should let us know how big it is, and maybe a photo of the base would help too.   :)

Ivo:
That is indeed the one vase I have seen from them, along with the foam glass vases mentioned on the Murano forum. Ichendorf was located in Bergheim-Ichendorf, Germany and went under at the end of the 70s - at that time the main designer was Alfred Gunther. I think you'll have a hard time finding out about the factory, I don't think much has been published.

As said, the current Venice glass dealer operating under the same name may or may not be related - I have no idea.

Formgiva:
Hi Max

Ivo has told me that Ichendorf are german and were based in cologne

here are some more detailed ones for you max...The base is unsigned, it bears a large polished pontil and a fair bit of shelf wear, this is a heavy piece at 2kg ! and it is 25cm tall marked and I have never asked an id help question so please excuse me... I didn't have a pic of the base to hand so I have just quickly snapped one (I left the glass I am getting ready to photo prior to selling there too, I thought it would be intriuging if anyone managed to guess who they were by through with just a tantalising glimpse...<clue>all 3 in the background are scandinavian!)
