I would suspect your first piece is a rather nice and slightly unusual bit of WMF - gorgeous ;D

I can't comment on the second bit, but would ask you please, to create a different thread for it?
They are both lovely bits of glass, they deserve a thread each - and it saves the thread getting very confused about which piece of glass is being referred to in further discussion.
Cheers, Sue (M)

I would agree -- WMF Ikora glass, and very nice.

I had a look through the Ikora book, and there are three vases of similar shape in the 1928 catalogue.
The best match would be pattern 213/208, 18 cm high.

Gorgeous piece! Make sure german buyers will find your listing. An unusual piece like yours may
get a good result if there are several severely interested Ikora collectors...  8)

You could add "large and colourful", implying contemporary Chinese, and not put a picture in.....  that would help me no end!
