Ruby octagonal tapered vase
« on: October 05, 2012, 11:03:17 AM »
8" high appears quality with the polished faceted sides.
Scandinavian possibly cannot find anything similar.
More photos in the album not the best it's a bit gloomy again.
Thanks Chris

Ilmkristall, from Ilmenau GDR circa 1980. I have something very much like it in black, and a square one in orange - with its original price tag of 88 Ostmark.
