Trailed vase ........new Polish? ID = Gistl, Germany
« on: August 14, 2010, 03:59:48 PM »
Bought this for a friend to match her new bedroom curtains!!!!! I am fairly sure it is new Polish glass, but wondered in any event if anyone may have seen it before.  It is 6.5 inches tall and about 5.5 inches wide.  Base has oval shaped polished pontil mark with little wear. Whatever it is, it feels a fairly good quality and the green trailing is applied to the surface.

Interesting timing. Astrid kindly emailed me recently to ask about an attribution, Leerdam Tortuga, I had on my Picasa album for a blue version of this piece. She had been at the Leerdam museum and noticed the Tortuga examples there didn't look my piece. Her conclusions matched the direction I was going in as I had started looking for similar Tortuga pieces on the internet and hadn't found any. You'll find a few of these pieces on eBay and elsewhere being sold as Barovier & Toso, Siderio, or Leerdam, Tortuga.

Astrid suggested that they might be Gistl glashütte, Germany, and provided this link. http://www.glaskilian.de/Gistl.524.0.html. It's a link worth exploring, but I'm not absolutely positive it's the correct attribution still. I've got another similar piece arriving by mail this week so I'll add more later.

I can confirm the Gistl probability, they come in a great variety of shapes and sizes. It is not Tortuga - even if sellers like to misrepresent these vases as such.

Thanks, Ivo. I suppose it would be too much to hope that Eisch had anything to do them as I believe he worked there for a while.

How very interesting.  I would much appreciate if you find out anything more on these in the future....... And if Gistl.........is this company still in existence?  Just looked at your link and see that Gistl could be a contender.
My vase is in such good unblemished condition it looks almost new.

Ah, I see David and Ivo already have beaten me to it... I'm currently trying to acquire one of these, but I think it's unmarked. I've seen the Gistl attribution a few times on these pieces for sale, independent of one another, but no label as of yet. If I ever see one with a label, I'll confirm.

I'm convinced. Gistl it is.
