A pitcher plant shaped large vase- ID = Makora
« on: June 23, 2010, 04:09:35 PM »
This large vase, around 31cms tall, is cased in clear glass. the interior is white and the outer surface has a bark or marble textured design. The base has been ground. I should be grateful for any suggestions as to origin.
Thanks Jeanne

I believe Christine is right...  It looks like it comes from Makora's "Saharah" range.

All the best!

Thankyou for your suggestions. I have looked at the Makora website and this surface decoration seems to come from their Ckracked range (strange spellinG).

Are you sure you typed the name of the range correctly?   I don't think they've got a 'ckracked' range.  :-\

Hi Jeanne,

My that's strange...  on the Polish site, there is no 'Ckracked' range...  and the Saharah pattern (which on the Polish site is very much like the pattern on your pitcher) is COMPLETELY different on the English site!  I think someone at Makora is slightly confused...  or maybe I'm just confused  :).

Glad you found what you were looking for!  All the best.
