So now my moment of truth...  Today, I got (what I think is) a Borske Sklo vase... 

Is this a 'rare' Borske Sklo white cased red vase from a range exhibited at the Brussels World Exposition in 1958 (as presented in Mark Hill's Hi Sklo Lo Sklo)?

(Oh, please don't let me be a silly cow...   :pb:)

THANK YOU!

Certainly looks like it to me, judging by the photo in Hi Sklo Lo Sklo!  Well spotted.   :D

Yes! That is lucky.

It is exactly the same pattern as two of three of these rare types of vase that were displayed as part of the Graham Coolley collection at Broadfield House Glass Museum, that were so well described by Mark Hill in another recent post. You are lucky to have effectively had a valuation by one of the leading authorities on collectables in Britain. I am sure that when he reads this post in the next couple of days he will confirm this is one of those vases! I attach my photo of the three vases that were displayed,

I'd think it is Anik, congrats! I'm sure Mark will be able to confirm for you when he gets back.  :thup:

OH MY!!!  ;D

Thank you so much...  I'm so pleased (and highly relieved) that it is what I hoped it would be!  The lady I bought it from had described it as "a 60s art-deco style vase" and nothing else.  So I really am one lucky lady!!!
