Hi to all.
 I am needing some help identifying the maker of this clear glass vase. I originally thought  Iittala possibly Pinus designed by Tapio Wirkkala. I think I have ruled that out  as I have not found a  match. It measures approx 8 inches high.
Thanks for any help that can be given
 I know it is preferred that we use Yobunny for our  pics here, but I am having all sorts of problems atm trying to get them to upload. Its just not happening and I keep getting error messages.So here they are from my Picasa Album

Don't recognise it but I believe not Sklo Union or Whitefriars.

The quality of the finish doesn't look very Iittala either. Sorry about that.

Very nice looking vase, looks Scandinavian at first glance, I guess it could also be Czech but not Sklo Union as it is not pressed.

Quite a distinctive design, like melting ice, sooner or later somebody will spot another.

I think this piece might be German. Several German makers produced patterns like this somewhere between the 60's and 80's. If the quality of the finishing isn't great, I would tend to think of smaller Scandinavian or German makers. Walther for instance could have made that. Unfortunately, ID'ing German glass is difficult, as resources are far and few.

PS I've attached a few German Peill vases to show the style similarities from German glass from that period, though yours is most likely not by Peill.

Hello Julie, we actually prefer you to add your pics directly to the board as attachments. The GlassGallery (that which you erroneously called Yobunny - Yobunny is in fact my business and just provides the space for the GlassGallery :)) ) is now a secondary area for the board's image storage which pre-dates when we could add pics directly onto the board itself. It also houses a variety of research project pics and members' personal glass collection albums.  If you need help with adding pics either onto the board or to GlassGallery please feel free to email me directly for help. :)
