No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection.

Having the right books is a great aid in identifying glass.

Hi all
I picked this vase up and havent the first idea on where to even start on trying to work out a possible maker or even country.
The vase is quite crude, with a slight blue-ish tint to the glass.
The vase has a textured look (reminds me of beaten metal) with 3 naked female forms around it (all the same), there are 2 indented seams running up the side (not like pressed glass seams)
On the base is a moulded mark, when you look down on to it is just a sqiggle, but when you look through the glass at it, it looks a bit like a £ sign without the middle line
the vase stands at 22.5cms tall and 6.5cm in diameter
many thanks
michelle
