French Glass Query - ID = Art Vannes, France
« on: September 25, 2010, 08:41:19 AM »
Hi

Would like to identify the maker of this vase.  

Unfortunately although I took pictures of the etched backstamp, it didn't show up.  The description is as follows:

Diamond shape stamp with ART at the top and FRANCE at the bottom and something like 'V Cleesre' in the centre.

Can't find anything for that particular word, so wondered if I've read it incorrectly.

Flat bottom with lots of wear ... would date to the 70's.

Would appreciate your help.

Yep, that's it!

But really, you have to make your eyes squint to read it as Vannes ;)
