Any thoughts on this one.

It's signed of sorts on the base with a lot of base wear and white stones within the glass.

It's 12 inches in height.

Regards Chris.

Poland, I believe maybe Adam Jabłoński

See HERE Sample #1 and also HERE Sample # 2

Mine (sample # 2 ) might be just *wonker* writing on bottom than the first ???

Hi Chris,

Your vase may certainly be Polish, but that it not Jablonski's initials or name on the bottom (he always signed his pieces very neatly with a Polish-type 'AJ' or 'Jablonski' or 'A. Jablonski'). 

Quite a few pieces seem to be popping up (which do certainly look like Jablonski's designs, or later, Marian Pyrcak's designs) but they've got a FiC or F&C scratched onto the bottom (like yours).  I don't know who or what FiC or F&C was/is...  perhaps an importer or distributor?

At any rate, that is not Jablosnki's mark on the bottom though the piece may be his design.  "F&C" remains a mystery for the time being.

Anik  :)

Hi Chris...  that's not a '7' but the way Poles (and Jablonski) write their 'J's.  A '7' would have an extra line going straight through the middle. 

Here is an example with 'A. Jablonski'.  The J is exactly the same as in the piece posted directly above.  :)
