Vase with Dolphin middle stem,love it but who made it?
« on: July 15, 2012, 12:49:38 PM »
Hi all,i have found a vase that has a widish bowl to the top with a wave edge,dolphin or koi that makes up the stem with the bowl sitting on the tail & a square base all in a light pink glass.
I'm really sorry i have no photo to show you & i hope my sketchy description helps.

I would like to buy it but its quite afew $$ & am hoping someone follows & can advise me what & who made it.

I was told it is Art Deco??

TIA kat

Thanks guys,the first one No,as it has no crome,cheers for that though :)
The second is closer,the bowl sits sortta more in the middle of the tail & the tail end shows being curved over.
The bowl frill is more free flowing & i have just noticed that the bowl goes into a sort of pour lip on one side.
Sorry but i cant do links atm,am i able to tell an ebay listing number,i have asked if she would accept an offer,answered maybe!

Ok will add item number,if i get in trouble.......... :'(

I would suggest from the colour it is American. I would look at Heisey, Tiffin and other similar makers

Hi & cheers for your reply,have had a quick look at what you have said & not found anything,yet.
A quick pointer,do you think it is as old as stated in the listing,that my main concern atm.
