WMF IKORA???
« on: March 19, 2006, 12:48:41 AM »
Could anyone tell me if i'm right in thinking that these two are both pieces of WMF Ikora glass.
I paid nearly £100 for the pair (probably a bit much)so i'm hoping they are. Im sure the pattern and shape are right for the bowl, the shape seems right for the tall vase.
What do you think?
Thanks
David.

affirmative, and really not shockingly expensive.

Seconded, particularly the cone shaped vase.

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Thank you for your replies. Not such a bad buy after all!
 Thanks for the link to the website Pamela. It has exactly the same vase!
Ive been looking through the excellent links from the Ikora site and have found lots of similar pieces . But even better many new sources of images for European glass. I now have at least 5 more glass sites listed as favourites.
Thanks again
David.
