Two vases with rolled rims - Scandinavian?
« on: November 08, 2009, 07:33:18 PM »
Hi,
I've recently bought two different vases with rolled rims.  Please can anyone help me identify them?
The blue one is 23cm tall and looks a bit like a Frank Thrower FT77 except that the base is different.
The amber one (11.5cm tall) reminds me of pictures I've seen of a Nuutajarvi Notsjo sargasso bowl, but I haven't seen one in this colour.  The base is clear.
Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Marie.

They look a bit Scandi in my opinion Hadeland or Hogland i have had both with turned rim .Is that a foot on the amber one or just a reflection ? its a Hoglund colour i believe .

Hi,
The base of the amber vase has a clear foot.
Thanks for your thoughts and answering to my post. 
Marie.

People here will need to see a clear shot of the base before being able to tell you if it is Boda Höglund (which I don't believe), or Hadeland, or contemporary decoration from China or Poland.

I've uploaded a photo of the amber foot which is clear, and one of the base of the blue vase which is the same blue as the body.  Does this help?
Thanks for your comments.  Marie.

It helps considerably but the news is not good. The finish of the pontil is matt in stead of highly polished, which makes it contemporary Chinese or Polish - not Swedish or Norwegian as we'd hoped. But aparrt from that - strong in colour, strong in shape, nice well made usable vases so congratulations are in order...

I didn't know that a matt pontil meant it was probably contemporary Chinese or Polish.  I do like these vases.  Thanks for the information. Marie.

Contemporary Polish stuff can have a lovely shiny polished pontil too

Several UK firms have semi polished pontils so there is no hard & fast rule .
