Iridescent Glass Vase
« on: September 30, 2012, 05:20:30 PM »
Hello. I'm fairly certain the attached is a modern piece of glass. But does anyone have any clues regarding the maker?
Many thanks, Anthony

I had one of these a while back. I loved the thick applied texture.

It had a made in Taiwan label on the base.

Cheers
Mel

Thanks Mel. I had suspected it might have been the work of our friends in the East. Cunning little devils, aren't they?
Many thanks, Anthony

wow Mel! that is very interesting to know as these have been on the board before and there has been debate about these being by Kralik I think.  I'm very interested because I bought one a while ago for referecence.
They are beautifully made, good quality pieces.  Very interesting that yours had a made in Taiwan label on.
I'lll find the other thread now and link it here.

link here - mine is the same as yours and appears further down the thread.  I did not get a response from my email btw (reference the information near the end of that thread)

The plot thickens. Interesting - thanks for posting. The link takes me back to the home page not to a specific thread. I'd be really interested to see it if possible...
Many thanks, Anthony

yes, I had to log in before I could access the thread.

Ok, I've had a trawl through my old pics and I've found a base shot.

No label it was on the other of a pair, sold as a modern art glass vase.

Would explain why they flew out if people thought they were Kralik.  :o

Can't comment on the others in this thread but mine were definitely not.

hope it helps
Mel

mine looks like yours.  And wow, given I own one and can look at the quality of it I have to say I'm seriously impressed at the finished article.
