These exuberant vases were purchased as a pair from a dealer at a local flea market.  Both have moderate base wear, so I'm assuming they're a few decades old.  To my eye they look Czech, but I have never seen anything like them, in person, books or the internet. The bright green one with the spiral shaped tips is particularly bizarre.  Almost reminds me of Antonio Gaudi.  I'd love to know anything about them - maker, designer, age, etc.  Thanks for your assistance.

Charles.

Not sure about Czech, possibly Canadian, altaglass, Lorriane maybe.... not at all sure though... I am confident that they are unlikely CZ

Thanks. With these clues, I've found they're Chalet Glass of Canada. Embarrassing. Wish I could go back and change title of the posting. :(

I'll pass on Deborah Patterson's opinion on these two pieces:  the twisted arm piece is EDAG, another Canadian glass company, and the other piece is Lorraine. So, yes, Canadian; no, not Chalet.  Deborah is the authority, btw, so her attributions are as reliable as can be had.

Anne,

Could the Chalet ID be removed from the subject line so that similar pieces are not misidentified in the piece. The EDAG and Lorraine attributions are absolutely solid, and they are companies quite distinct from Chalet
