Help with ID of small Ruby glass vase
« on: August 17, 2012, 10:49:08 AM »
Hi all,

I'm new to this forum and hope i can contribute whatever i can to it and join in with topics as they come up.
My first topic regards a small Ruby or Cranberry vase which i bought recently. This vase is about 4 inches high and 1.25 inches at the base. It has a heavy clear glass bottom and ruby coloured top section and the whole has a curvey shape widening , narrowing and flaring at different points. The underneath is etched with what looks like a capital B or the letters E and L depending on which way up it is!
Does anyone have any thoughts on identification?
