Optimistic ebay attribution?
« on: January 28, 2010, 10:37:17 PM »
I was at a friends last weekend to photograph several labels on items in his glass collection, a bit nerdy but I don't get out much. His glass is mostly  Whitefriars so I had trouble staying awake ;D) and one of the items he has that neither of us had a clue about is one of these vases:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270521498269&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

Does anyone know who made it, the seller has thrown a few names around but I am not convinced.

John

I think the origin of Scandinavian is correct. Oddly, I have double layer Sommerso piece that I believe to be Scandinavian which has a similiar type base, except that it is a four sided (sort of diamond shape - not the best explanation) that has a similar colour on the secondary layer to it! I wont even attempt to describe the first layer as i will no doubt get it wrong. Unfortunately it is packed away and will be a few months before i can get to the box. I will post once I have rediscovered it!

Looking forward to seeing a photo, I will snap a photo of my friends vase too - will need one for this thread when the ebay listing ends.

Excellent John, I might get around to unpacking it earlier, hopefully by the end of the month if all goes to plan.

-I am a WFs buff as well! Slowly getting the pieces I want together! :clap:

I just discovered I already had pics! This one is just over 40 cms in height. The tallest sommerso I own. The green is darker/brighter though. The base is similar in style. I think this is Scandinavian?!

My guess on origin for your vase would be Czech, it is though a flailing around kind of wild stab in the dark. :D

Ha ha John, flailing around in the dark! Just don't knock over any glass whilst your doing it!  :24:

I have no idea to this piece either. And out of all the sommerso's I own, all the house guests/friends used to comment on this one mostly!

It is permanently packed away now as I have accidently knocked it over twice in a week and decided to not tempt fate for a third go! Thankfully no damage to the piece  :thup:

You're kidding, Kaz, someone smashed all your glass? That's heartbreaking.  :'( (No pun intended.)
