Cylindrical stick vase with irregular spun threads, 9", polished rim

Two mould blown pieces in light teal/ sea green. You may remember the one on the left, I posted it a while ago and have not managed to ID it. But I found a jug with a nautical theme which has the same colour and manufacturing technique. It is - if not the summit of tasteful abstract design - at least recognisable. Anyone?

A clear tankart, thickwalled, hand made, polished pontil mark, handle applied bottom up, inside six panel optic, the rim is curved inward. Does anyone this is English - or should I be looking east for answers?

The pattern on the green mould-blown vase on the left pops up in cased glass by Empoli (I think - I might be wrong).... there have been a couple of threads discussing them within the last few months, I'm sure.

I'm with Nic on the green on the left.  I have an almost identical patterned one which is cased - previously discussed and thought to be Empoli c.60s.

Ivo, I have one of the tankards (pic on right) as well, and saw a couple of others the same whilst at GB Antiques in Lancaster with Peter and Ray a couple of months back. No idea who made them but having several in the same area may be helpful to know about.

Didn't someone unearth one on eBay with an original label?

Yes me, It took me a while to remember that.  :roll:


It had an Opalina Fiorentina sticker.

Amazed that these pics from November last year still work. Thanks for all the input re tankart and the Empoli green stuff. The cylindrical vase with the irregular spun thread has meanwhile almost been identified as Glasgralhütte Durnau.
