Is this blue vase Scandinavian?
« on: November 27, 2009, 05:20:22 PM »

Click on above image for more views.

Height 13.8cm 5½", d. 20.3cm 8", foot d. 10.3cm 4 1/8", weight 768g 1lb 11oz.

Nicely made with thick foot for stability, works well as a flower vase.   Neat centrally ground out and polished pontil scar.   Light wear around the footrim and on the inside of the constriction just above the base.

Any ideas on attribution, date?

I tried this in the general Glass forum here, but without luck.

Thanks for looking,

Bernard C.  8)

ps — I had real difficulty with the camera's focus, as there was nothing for the camera to focus on!

I think you can discount Denmark... so that's 25% of the Scandi countries out of the way. The shape looks much more English than Scandinavian to my eyes, in any case.

Can't really help beyond that, sorry.
