Pink and gold bud vase for id
« on: October 13, 2012, 02:52:51 PM »
Actually I'm not sure how this shape is described? although I know it's quite a common one.

Does anyone know the maker?

Around here this would be considered a small egg shaped personal oil lamp thats missing the wick.

The bottom is dimpled but perfectly flat with the rest of the vase there is no pontil scar - hope that makes sense. The link posted actually shows the base but its a little hard to make out.

Saw a few dozen of tbese on the Duesseldorf flea market this morning, most had their bar code tag on it still. It seems to  me these oil lamps were produced jn India. Replacement wich should not prove hard to come by.
