Vase ID needed
« on: August 11, 2012, 09:26:18 PM »
Tall vase in clear glass with green to base fading to top - bubbles throughout - square section narrowing to top - hand blown I think from inspection, or at least blown into a mould. Any ideas.

I noticed there were two of these (not identical, but probably from the same manufacturer) listed on ebay at the moment, tentatively identified as Sklo. I've been searching Sklo, and other manufacturers, for a few days and can't find anything similar. Starting to wonder if it's a Chinese copy of Whitefriars.

Sklo is a pretty meaningless attribution as it's the Czech word for glass. It's generally used in connection with Sklo Union, which was an umbrella organization for Czech factories making pressed glass.  I don't recognize it as Czech, either Sklo Union or handworked.  I would check out Humppila from Finland first, although China would be next in line.

It looks very new and modern.

It was very cheap or I wouldn't have bought it, I regretted it later thinking it was modern. Ah well, Portobello Road was a wash out. However the charity shops in North London were great and I got great things for amazing prices, much better than Glasgow.

As there is nothing remotely like this in the Whitefriars catalogues, I would suggest NOT! :-\

I didn't say it was a good copy.  :P

With that type of green, and the  fading, I think it's modern production, probably from the far east. Bought a very similar style and colour of vase for my mother in a flower shop a year ago (a plain box with no markings, which I associate with 'far east').
