Heavy Clear Cut Glass Vase ??? = Whitefriars C584
« on: June 05, 2005, 09:02:05 PM »
I've not quite got the hang of photographing clear glass yet, so these pics. are as good as they get for the time being :roll: unless anyone has any suggestions on how to take better ones :lol:
This is a really heavy cut glass vase with a very solid thick base.  It has 8 sides with polished roundels and vertical lines, and arch shapes at the bottom.  Flat base with no mark, but signs of wear - looks fairly old.   Just over 7.5" high and 2.5" at widest.  I thought may be an English maker or possibly Czech?  I don't normally like clear glass, but this one is interesting because of the design.  Any ideas on origin/age would be much appreciated.
Many thanks - Anne. :lol:

Mystery solved for the heavy crystal glass vase with polished roundels, vertical cuts and arches around the bottom.  Just spotted it on the Members' Gallery on the Whitefriars website - "hand cut lead crystal, Patt.C584 1964-80."  That was a bit of a surprise - would never have thought it was WF :P
