Hi Christine, I am aware that my vase is not a Harrach Life Light. Having read the other comments and carried out my own research and based upon, the more than useful information gathered , I am still convinced the vase has all the qualities of being Harrach. That is not to say it is though and would like to make that very clear, as I am no expert on the subject matter. I've, yet again, reviewed the Welz and Ruckl design as an area of possibility, and as stated before, I cannot see any resemblance, unless I am looking in the wrong place
. I would most definately elliminate Ruckl from my line of enquiries, unless stated otherwise. In view of this, I am enlclined to follow the same thoughts as Dirk in relation to this uncertainty.
The museum in Nový Bor also attributes some striped vases like yours as Welz production.
The longer I collect the more I become reluctant to 100%
statements. At any time a successfull design and technique may have been copied within a
short time by others who had the means and skills, too, I suppose...
Unless any other information comes to light. I would label/describe this vase as Bohemian, late 1800's
