Millefiori paperweight bud vase
« on: August 25, 2012, 12:50:57 PM »
Another piece from my Scottish glass 'job lot'
Hoping it is Scottish the rest are :) Perthshire/Strathearn maybe? but could be Murano or even Chinese I guess.
Thanks for looking at the link will post a permanent photo later just watching Yorkshire spanking Sussex ;D

Hi Chris,

I definitely think that it is Scottish: a Vasart or early Strathearn piece IMHO.

Hi Chris

I think these bud vases are Strathearn (I have seen labelled ones), but there may be some late Vasart ones.

Hi, thanks you both for your input, I have described it probably Strathearn possibly Vasart and include the GMB in the listing.
Appreciated as always Chris
