Help Identify
« on: March 17, 2011, 06:32:02 PM »
Please help me identify this vase.  It is 18 inches tall and 18 inches around at the widest part.  It is deep red, ribbed with a free form design at the top.  Thanks for any information.

I can't find any 18 inch vases by Anchor Hocking.  Any suggestions as to where to look?   Thanks for your help.

The shape and pattern remind me of an L.E Smith vase I had that was an opaque Orange called Bittersweet or Butterscotch or something. Anyways the point being that the pattern appears the same.

Thanks for all the information.  Does anyone have any idea how much it is worth, or is that not a question for this forum?   Thanks!

Depends on the size and color I suppose. I sold my huge orange one for $70 fixed price but the majority of them don't go for that much cause of the high shipping costs cause of size. However, saying that, I've not seen many Red ones so it might be worth a touch more.

Here's a blog that shows both a red one and a bittersweet one under it.

None of those are identical to mine in shape, but they are very, very close.  Thanks so much.
