Please help glass vase : ID = WMF Ikora
« on: November 15, 2012, 06:51:36 PM »
First the facts: Vase
Weight 1300 grams
Height 14.5 cm
Diameter 13 cm
On the surface ground floor very, very, very many scratches.
Base color: translucent blue. Various and different sized air pockets.
More color inclusions rather sieana brown.
There are no markers mark.
It is an old family piece, probably in the early 20th Century.
It has been said many times and always: Murano!
I did not think so. The glass work looks more like Orrefors, Strathearn or after Jean Claude Novaro.
Please check out the photos of and if you have a reference, I would be very grateful!
Helene

WMF Ikora glass, so called "Dexel Ei (=egg)" (shape designed by Walter Dexel around 1937).
Very very nice!

Now the enigma is resolved!
But where and how can I sell the item?
And: what shall I do get an usual price?
And: what is the usual price?

I would think it would find it's own "usual" price if you put it on ebay.
You can list it with the correct attribution, I think it would fly - there will be many people who would like it.
(me included!  ::) )
