Bark textured vase, not Whitefriars, maybe Ingrid...
« on: August 17, 2010, 12:40:59 PM »
Hi all, I recently picked up this bark textured vase, I thought it looked very Ingrid-ish at first, but it has a bird bath style base which I haven't seen on an Ingrid piece before.  The rim also seems a lot thinner than usual.  Any ideas? Could it be Oberglas maybe? Or  :or:?

Size: 8 inches tall by 2.5 inches wide.

I think you could be right. Oberglas is a contender - but it could also have originated in Empoli. It is one of those "on the one hand.... but then on the other..." items. I wouldn't even exclude Ingridglas.

I would exclude Japanese due to the base and the rim. The base is not a finish I would expect and the rim looks too 'free form' for something from them.

I would be looking at a European maker.
