At last! A vase with an applied beach towel!
« on: March 18, 2006, 10:44:03 PM »
I seem to be the only one in my family that likes this. It reminds me of a beach with a bright sunny blue sky and all. Not an English beach though.

Really thick heavy glass with an applied, um, strap of glass around the middle.

IMHO, I would have expected a better finish to the base. The base is slightly frosted. I presume this means it hasn't been polished? A few bubbles in the glass too.

Please don't say Chinese. Well, okay, you can say Chinese if you want to.  :lol:

Chinese is good as it sells quite well at my local Antique Fair.  8)

Any ideas? Thank you.  :)

Good piece, great colours, nice shape. Have you thought of doing something about your family?

Looks like an unsigned Unica - well it has to be, there can not be a second like it... Country of origin - maybe Britain, maybe Belgium, maybe Poland.
works especially well with daffodils.

I'd send them to a good home, but they're not old enough yet.  :lol:

Thanks, i'm glad it's not just me that likes it.  :o

I especially like the way the blue bits shine up onto the rim (etc) giving it a slight blue tint inside the clear glass. I got it from the same place as my Colin Brown vase so perhaps it's from a collector of modern studio glass.  :D

Here's the long explanation:

On the "Post A Reply" page:
Click on Img button
Click on Img button again.
Highlight (http://)
Click on URL button
Add an = after the first Url

It should look like this
(http://)

Frank has given a clue as to where to paste the links. Paste the large picture link first and then the thumbnail picture link.
