Mystery Pink Deco Vase
« on: January 08, 2006, 12:01:27 PM »
Hello, I am a relatively new member, though I have been collecting glass of various types for some years now. Recently I have centred my collecting on 30's pressed glass, mainly Jobling and Barolac though I also have a large number of items by other makers

A few days ago I found this beautiful pink glass vase on a small collectables stall for a bargain price (£4)

Its a very nicely finished piece. It stands on an octagonal stepped foot and has an unusual design of 8 tall leaves moulded in relief around the sides. The body of the vase is quite delicately moulded whilee the leaves stand out in high relief (about 1cm). The surface of the leaves has been frosted while the rest is left clear/ polished. Overall height is about 9 inches (23cm). It comes with an 8 pointed star shape flower separator which i have also pictured.

I am fairly certain it isn't English and I don't recognise it as a Walther or Brockwitz pattern. If anyone has any suggestions as to who might have made it I would be very grateful.

Thank you for your time & expertise!

Hi Steven
If you have patience and some German try

Glen may have some ideas. Her knowledge of pressed glass is phenominal. Hopefully she will be along later as may Pamela.

Hi Steven,
what a beauty !
In this case you do not need to search on my website, I haven't got it  :(
And no instant idea of the maker I'm afraid...
Investigating further!
If it is for sale, would you kindly inform me please?
Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Fascinating item - and what a tactile looking pattern.

It's not a piece that I am familiar with though, sadly.

thanks to everyone for their help. I've had a quick look through pressglass-korrespondenz but can't immediately see anything similar (though my German is not so good, meaning I can't navigate through the site so well!) I think I may e-mail Siegmar directly, he has helped me identify a few items in the past...

In the meantime I will try to get some better pictures and continue researching - i'll post any further information on the vase as and when I find it.

Sorry to disappoint you, Pamela but the vase isn't for sale as yet. In fact, I bought the vase both because I loved the design and was very intrigued by it as I had no idea of maker.  I am often fascinated by designs I don't recognise as, for me, one of the most rewarding aspects of collecting is researching a piece and learning more about it.  For these reasons, the vase is currently proudly displayed with my favourite pieces.  If this changes and i do decide to sell, you'll be the first to know.

I've taken some better pictures of the vase, they are in my B & M album in the Glass Gallery. I have also e-mailed them to Siegmar Geiselberger at Pressglas-korrespondenz to see if he can shed any light on who might have made it.

Will update the post if I find out anything interesting.......
