I'd like to give this a polite    *Bump*  !

Because one exactly like this has just come in to my possession and I would like to know something about it.

Eg. Origin.. Age..etc.

Any thoughts anyone??

How is the base finished, how is the rim finished?

Hi...

Got around to taking some photo's of mine...

Particularly the base and rim.

Not really sure how to describe the base, and the rim looks as though it has been heated and polished.... (Not sure this is the right terms, please inform me so I can learn and know for next time!)

Thanks!

If the rim has been heat finished it will be round in cross section, if it was ground and polished it would be flat (possibly with bevelled edges). Yours looks heat finished.

If the base has got a concave depression this is usually what we call a polished pontil mark. This is where it would have been attached to the glass workers metal rod (called a pontil rod/iron), removing the rod leaves a scar on the glass (pontil scar/mark), when this is ground and polished away it leaves a polished depression. Some bases are flat and shaped by a mould some are ground and polished to make them flat. I can't tell for sure how yours are finished from the photos.

A possibility for maker of your vases would be Aseda, they certainly made vases in blue and green, there are three examples here towards the bottom of the page:

Thanks for all the info John, and taking the time!   :thup:

Have looked around abit at 'Aseda' and can see the similarities but no definate matches yet!

'Heat Finished' is the term I could not think of... I knew what I meant, just didn't know what to call it!
