Rose Vase
« on: November 13, 2012, 12:57:31 PM »
Iv'e been told that this is a rose vase, it's a pretty dusky pink and has a bubble band around which resembles a snake.
On the bottom there is a circle with a capital R inside................... i know nothing so any help would be appreciated.
Thanking you
Kay

The R in a circle is I think the mark of Richard Clements from Tasmania. Best known for his perfume bottles.  Are you sure this is a vase and not a bottle with a missing stopper? you did not give sizes?

He can probably make a new stopper for you too http://www.richardclements.com/

Jackie and Frank thank you so very much, it's about two inches high..... yes it does indeed look as though it could be a perfume bottle, am going to look more at the site of Richard Clements.
Again thanking you....

Kay Welcome.

Attributions on the GMB can take minutes, hours, days, months, years or never.   One of mine that took nearly six years was Mystery blue pressed bowl, - ID = Poland, Stolle Niemen, but there aren't many like that.

Much depends on a well-worded title attracting the interest of someone who knows, as many of our members only drop by occasionally.
