An elegant vase. Just to clarify please, is the base polished completely flat? I would expect this with a possible Czech piece, but if the pontil rod mark is polished into a concave central circle on the base, this would make Czech more doubtful.

If totally flat, it is possible to contact Moser and ask them about this piece, they have been very helpful with my enquiries, with cut pieces like this, the answer should be very clear from them, as they have a historian on site who has a lot of knowledge. (However, the Moser option is only one of a few possibilities).

Thanks Robert. There is definitely a polished pontil mark rather than a flat base. I'll try to post a photo later if I can

Good idea re the Moser historian and archivist

The polished pontil mark is rare/unknown for Moser, I have only seen flat bases, same with ZBS. I am not even sure I would bother Moser with a piece of cut glass unless the base was flat! But it is a distinctive vase that deserves attribution..... maybe German and Scandinavian are options...

I did eventually email the Moser historian - thanks for this idea

The reply - below - indicates it's not Moser but Zelezny Brod, although I'm not sure of their degree of confidence about this

Reply as follows

thank you for your e-mail and the sent pictures of your glass vase.
I have forwarded these photos to the Moser historian who confirmed me that this vase not produced by Moser glassworks as the citrine colour and way of producing do not correspond to the Moser production. It seems your vase might had been produced by the glassworks in Zelezny Brod (North Bohemia).
