Hi there,

If anyone could give me some information on this item i'd be extremely grateful. I have a heavy glass vase (looks more like it holds a pot plant than flowers) which was brought by my uncle in 1983. It has a sticker on the bottom which says 'handmade by ODESSA designer glassware' but google hasnt helped my identify it at all. It is triangle in shape, the inside is dark blue and the outside is grey/ white with swirls of other colours in the middle, on each side. If its worth anything i'm looking to sell it, the uncle who brought it was an antiquites dealer so im hoping its is a find!
Again, any information would be great.

Many thanks

Marley

I think perhaps we need to know where you are. If you are not in the USA, I would suggest from the unpolished base that it was made in Odessa in the Ukraine.

Michelle - Thanks for your help anyway, i appreciate you looking. Take care  :)


Lustrousstone - I'm in the UK, Kent. As far as i know it was brought in the UK although my uncle was a frequent visitor to Russia, Moldova, Romania etc so its possible he could have brought it abroad.
