vase stamped Made in Belgium, any thoughts?
« on: May 18, 2010, 01:12:32 PM »
Please view my photobucket links to view this beauty, which is plaguing me for identification :spls:

The large globular vase has been optic moulded within its inside only to dramatic affect. I at fuirst thought this piece to be a design by Max Kannegiesser for Borske Sklow, however though I am aware that this company merged with others during c1953, on closwer inspection there is a stenciled mark to the base of the vase:  MADE IN BELGIUM and so am wondering???

The vase is large at 7.5" high with a widest diam of 9" and the top rim has a very subtle ripple-effect to its fir-polished edge.  There are no moulding lines and so I can assume also that the vase was mould blown before then being internally plunged, before final adjustments were made to the top. There is evidence on the base of a small polished pontil, which may add soime cred, to my own observations??? :spls:

Your help with this one would be gratefully received and I thank you.  Jazz

I also bought a vase that I thought was Czech, it was about 2 years later that someone pointed out that it had Made in Belgium on the base, I had never noticed it before. Here it is just for a gander.
