Scandi (?) Engraved Vase....

(1/2) > >>

Pinkspoons:
First off, I'll apologise for the grubbiness of the vase and the poor lighting in the photos - I've spent all day wandering around Swinderby antiques fayre and all evening fixing a clock I bought there, so I'm too exhausted to do much about either problem for now! Zzzz.  :D

I bought the vase mostly just because I was curious about who made it, and partly because it's pretty (or rather has the potential to be, once all the grime has been washed off!) and cost £4.  :lol:

The signature on the bottom has mostly been worn away, and I can only make out the numbers for certain: 3210-14. And the initials before this might be F.W. / T.W. - but I may very well be wrong! I'm reasonably sure the last letter is W. though.

I also bought a tall mystery signed engraved neodymium vase from the same stall, for much the same reasons - I'll post a picture tomorrow when I'm more awake!  :lol:

Max:
Folke Walwing?  I don't know...seems unlikely somehow.  It's Orrefors isn't it though?

Pinkspoons:
I thought that Orrefors was a possibility, but it's not really my field so I didn't want to say one way or t'other. The stallholder did have quite a few Orrefors pieces, though. No idea whatever on the artist, though!  :oops:

Ivo:
Could be TW/  Wirkkala ?. I have quite a number of oval section vases which seem to have been made by everyone. I have them by Gullaskruf, Johansfors, Sea Glasbruk, Leerdam, VSL and Iittala - and a few unidentified ones which may or may not be engraved on Kosta blanks.  The numbers on these go all over the place - I've given up trying to ID them.

Pinkspoons:
Kosta was my other thought for this.

These types of oval engraved vases do seem to be fast becoming the staple stock of the glass sellers at antiques fayres - although usually they want £50+ for them, even if they have no idea who designed them.... or perhaps especially if they don't know!
