ooh thanks :)
that's marvellous because ages ago, but after this thread, I bought a huge vase like your blue/green one, in amber.
How big is your green blue one?
I'll add a pic once battery is charged.

Only 15 cm - quite a lot smaller than the amber one

mine here

the vase is 10"high by 7 3/8" wide
The combed decoration is done using enamels on both.  However the green lamp technique is, I think, more complex and sophisticated and seems to use two colours of enamels for the combing which the vase doesn't.
I'll try and resize better pics.
edited - added some more pics taken in daylight.
The colours of the lamp are pretty much true to colour with a bright jade green at the top and becoming lime -ier to the body as it meets the amber casing and then amber at the base.

amber combed vase base
indented base and lots of wear right around the edge.  Large polished pontil mark.

this vase is the same maker - it doesn't help me I'm afraid as the shape doesn't jog my memory of ever having seen anything similar.

Any help always appreciated. If this vase shape is recognised that would be great  ;D

Strangely it seems quite different to the lamp although I'm 100% sure it's the same maker.  It's less refined in shape, a little more organic, and of course has a pontil mark on the base whereas my lamp has an applied foot and shows no pontil mark.
Thoughts now are not leaning to WMF.

Thanks as always

polite bump to my thread :)
before these ebay pics disappear I just wondered if anyone recognised the shape of this footed vase as being from a particular maker or country even.

The pontil mark on the vase looks ground but not polished I think  :-\
I'm pretty sure it's the same maker as my lamp.
Would the pontil mark preclude it being Murano?
I ask because I found a Barovier vase amberish to green (no other similarity but just caught my eye) with a label on it and it seems to have a 'curious' pontil mark i.e.not snapped off.

Just wondering if any link can be found maybe for future searches :)
thanks for looking
