Uranium Glass Inwald Barolac Tulips Vase marked BELGE
« on: June 23, 2015, 06:21:54 PM »
The Belge mark on other pieces has been posted before. Recently I found this tulips vase which seems to match the Inwald Barolac one .

Uranium green is not a Barolac colour as far as I know and the fact its marked BELGE was the vase made in Belgium and by who and what if any connection to the Barolac vase.

Height 9" or 23cm and weighs 1466gm.

Thanks Roy

I recently discussed this topic with someone... he mentioned that these vases were not made in Belgium. Several models from different manufacturers can be found marked 'Belge' or 'Fabriqué en Belgique', still made wherever they came from but they were marked to avoid import taxes.

Seems to be the same mould as the Barolac "tulip" vase: http://www.pressglas-korrespondenz.de/aktuelles/pdf/pk-2006-3w-weihs-barolac-vase-tulpen.pdf
The author states that these tulip vases are definately Barolac / Inwald, and that "fake" country of origin marks are commonly found on some Czechoslovakian and German glass from that period.
As far as I know, Inwald did use Uranium glass, so maybe for (some) Barolac pieces as well?
Anyway -- nice vase!
