Textured Red Vase
« on: October 13, 2009, 11:28:34 AM »
Hello

Do you like my Whitefriars vase?  Just kidding.

As you can see, it has a "Foreign" sticker on the base but, as most of my glass is from overseas, it would be great to have a better idea of exactly where this vase was made.

It stands just under 7" tall.

Thanks in advance,
Stuart.

Substantial, really nice quality.  Has a tipping point of one third it's entire length from the base, so the base is suitably heavy for practical purposes as a flower holder.

I have seen a green one today, in a local antiques and colectables shop, for £38!  Crazy!

I really hope someone here can place this one because - although I am a seller/collector - I am really fascinated.  I have looked through so many textured vases, my eyes are going textured! 8)

Was it labeled though???...LOL...i think i would rather pay 38 quid for your piece with the label (even in aussie dollars)...merely for the label/research value...i have never seen one in that colour though...it really is nice...next time i stumble upon one...i will ensure i get closer inspection...
 
Thank you tinker...

100% Not Davidson Luna. Davidson Luna vases are uncased. Actual example of Luna pieces can be seen on Chris & Val Stewart's excellent site here: http://www.cloudglass.com/Gallerypostwar.htm

Your vase may be related to this one; similar texture but hexagonal rather than square. Label reads 'Best Art Glass, Foreign'. I've had this for years but have never been able to find out who made it....
