I had a turquoise uncased one, no pontil mark.  But I don't know if that is always the case.  I thought they didn't have  :-\

Mine -- no pontil mark whatsoever, smooth, slightly indented base.

None of several I handled had a pontil mark.  :)

Just a little info John - courtesy of Miller's - should it be of use.

I believe that the cased opaque two coloured examples are the most sought after - with red over white heading the list, possibly  -  and remember that with these things size does count ;)    Transparent colours included cobalt blue, brown and olive green.      However - and something I didn't know - is that these things were also made in the UK, during the late 1970's,  by a company called Cascade Glass (?)  -  in colours of:  kingfisher blue,colourless, pewter grey and smokey topaz.      Needless to say the British examples fetch only a fraction of the Danish/Brauer pieces.

Do you recall the colour of the charity shop example??

Paul there is more information on the board somewhere about the pieces produced at Cascade to the Brauer design.    I think Nic did a very good explanation somewhere.  I hope I remembered that right :-\

thanks m  -  I'm a great advocate of the Board's search facility, usually  -  but I was being impatient, and remembered that I had some of this information in a book which was to hand.    However, to be honest, I did not know we had a good input from Nic  -  so thanks for that.      I did once have two or three of these vases, but have now parted with them, but they do look good, and hopefully still fetch reasonable money.

It's okay - I supplied the Miller's info too.  :24: Although, typically, the small details got a little distorted en route to press.

But, yup, no pontil marks is standard. Although, from memory, a lot of the copyists are similarly finished.
