Just out of interest,what are the Bagley pieces that you have?  Have you managed to find references for them all? If you need any pointers on where to look, let us know.  There are several very informative on-line resources.  (I became quite interested in pressed glass last year, and am particularly drawn to the art deco and thereabouts stuff.)

Meanwhile we'll look forward to seeing what you think of your vase once it arrives. :thup:

Thanks for the offer, I've probably over stated it when I said 'collection' of Bagley , I don't have a lot!
 I have two green Grantham vases, one green Wyndham vase, one green queens Choice bowl, one clear glass rose bowl (which I can't remember the pattern name of) ) and three Bedford pattern vases (1 large green  and 1 small frosted pink - which I just bought a partner for recently so now I have a pair).
Luckily my grandmother kept them well, apart from the Bedford vases they all have their flower frogs.

Hopefully the vase will be here tomorrow or the next day so I'll keep you posted.

hoping I haven't bought a dud reproduction piece

Whatever you've bought it won't be that. You have to remember that Art Deco is a very vague term and that often items designed during the Art Deco period, like some of your Bagley items, were made for a good 20-30 years. Few of them have been reproduced though, although a fair few were copied at them time.

Art Deco style designs are still created, but they're not reproductions; they're new designs.

I would guess your vase could date from the 1930s through to the 1950s and is probably Czech. It might just be Australian! It's not a design I remember seeing

Sarah, If you're into Bagley Glass you really need the book by Angela Bowey (the owner of this board.) It covers almost everything you'll come across. Angela's in NZ too: http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,19293.0.html
