Hi all,
    Found I'm trying to figure out the maker and pattern on these three vases.  I was thinking Iittala, but I think I'm wrong there.    Thanks for looking!!<p><center><img src="http://imagehost.vendio.com/bin/imageserver.x/00000000/mrbristol/unkvases.jpg"  ALT="Image Hosting by Vendio"  >

I think these may be Austrian and by Oberglas.  :)

Hi, I think they might be Oberglas, have a look here for some similar:

I think this one looks the same, albeit in a different colour, their description of it being a Hyacinth vase is also debatable.

That looks like it,  I agree that it probably isn't a bulb vase.

These are definitely NOT bulb vases and appear in the wishful thinking (i.e., non-bulb vases) chapter of a certain bulb vase book

Curious, does that certain bulb vase book confirm that they are oberglas?
