New website on Australian glass.

Hi Cathy
This may be off the topic a little - but I thought the following vase on ebay was interesting because of its similarity in some ways to the Australian 'Petals' vase:

Thanks Jo, that's brilliant! I wondered when something like that would show up, since everything else in that era seems to have been copied from somewhere else.  There are a couple of prominent original designs from about 1939, and I'm not sure all made it through to production.

The petals vase was made in a posy vase size (it's either 1.5 or 2" high - will have to check, no time now), but this one seems to be more flared.

All the best,
Cathy.

:shock:  :shock: I have just dragged my little Petals vase from the top of a cupboard where I had forgotten all about it...  and it's far more similar to the vase on ebay than I remembered.
I've taken a photo (ignore the messy desk and the muck on the vase!). The pattern of the petals on mine is definitely the Australian Petals pattern  - the same as on the larger less conical vase and is slightly different to the one on ebay.

Thanks again Jo! I have all three sizes made in Australia, but now I don't know what is what. One of them is green and frosted, and one has that alternate frit/plain panel effect. I'll have to dig them all out and compare now. And of course, there's always the possibility that they got hold of the mould.

Bitten off far more than I can chew here.
Cathy

The pics and Tony's album link have all gone from this topic - could they be restored please for future reference? Many thanks. :)
