Tall Yellow Vase, Scandic?
« on: February 03, 2010, 10:28:32 PM »
Hi all

I do feel kind of silly not really knowing anything about these three posts and I hope there is the right section.
I am more comfortable with Orrefors/Stromberg/Kosta vases.

Out of the three I thing this is more Danish and in the back of my head maybe Murano?

Height 330mm Width 190mm

Kind regards

Jay

I suspect Chinese - the rim looks quite poorly finished. There's an outside chance of it being a production second from Empoli, Italy, but China is definitely my first guess.

Italy and Empoli gets my vote, here is a blue one with a stopper.

The ribs are different, the amber ones swirl. I'm with Nic.

I can't see from my photo whether the optic ribbing swirls or not and sadly this is the only photo of it I still have (I sold this bottle/decanter on ebay a few years ago).

I used to have far too many (30 or 40  :-[) of this kind of tall bottle with pointy stopper. Sometimes a design would have Made in Italy moulded on the bottom and sometimes the same design in a different colour would be blank. A few were from France and one or two were marked Portugal.

Andy McConnell in his book 20th Century Glass (page 87) states for this kind of bottle "Bormoili, Palma, 1970s".
