I picked up this vase over the weekend at a local antiques fair and was wondering if anyone can confirm it's id or any other info about it please?
It has uranium content as it glows under uv black light and has that lime green colour showing through the soft satin iridescent surface which reminds me of glatt decor. There is hand painted or enamelled flowers and gilded detail. No makers marks to the base or anywhere else on the glass. It was sold to me as a piece of french glass similar to Legras, but to me, it reminds me more of the Loetz type glass, maybe Harrach or similar but maybe I'm way off track?
Thanks  :)
