Unspectacular green vase marked H 938 / 1402 - ID = Hoglund
« on: February 06, 2012, 12:03:46 PM »
Hi all,

i am new to this board... i do not really collect glas (more into WGP Vases) but bought this green vase the other day here in Cologne, where i live.
It is 14 cm / 5.5'' tall and has some bigger air bubbles which i could not fotograph.
It is marked H. 938 / 1402 - out of curiosity anybody an idea who H is? Thanks for your suggestions... :)

It is a very nice piece... unfortunately fotographies can never really reflect the look and feel of such items.
Btw what do the numbers mean? Is this series No. 938 ? or item 938 from 1402 vases alltogether?

The design is 938 I believe, the 140 is size height, i.e. 140mm tall, but I don't know why yours has a 2 at the end of the 140.  Mine just says H938/140
