Azure/blue bubble vase with folded rim
« on: June 12, 2010, 09:09:06 PM »
When I bought it, I could have sworn it was one of Max Verboeket Antiqua vases from Kristalunie Maastricht, albeit in a azure blue colour. I was so sure, I bought it before even checking the book. But - this form isn't listed, although all the details seem to match. It fits the style of Antiqua, including that open folded rim, and the size of the bubbles is similar. As it's my only blue one, I can't really compare its colour to what I know to be real Antiqua. I hasten to say it's a nice quality piece of glass, so I don't feel I was wrong buying it, but now it seems to go in the pile of Udentified instead of Identified.

So, either there were more type of vases made in the Antiqua series than documented in my respectable source book by Mrs. van der Kley-Blekxtoon (who claims there were 26 different patterns, and lists 26 of them not including this one) - or this is something else entirely. I compared it to Meydam's Etruska series (which seems to have that colour blue, but a slightly different style) and I checked the silhouets of Boom's Mediaeval range (but that shape isn't in it). Any more ideas what it could be?

It's 19.5 cm high, and it has a square base with rounded edges, 12 cm by 12 cm.

Ah, thanks Ivo, seems it won't have to remain in my Unidentified pile.

From looking things up in your fact book, it seems to fit well with the Verre Antique range produced between 1946 and 1960 from Gobbe-Hocquemiller, likely designers Bellaska and Thumson? Or is this possibly of a later date, since the name art et verre is still in use today?
