Quality heavy cut vase
« on: December 06, 2012, 02:01:09 PM »
Hi Guys, any help would be great.
Its a quality piece, 8 1/2" tall and thick glass which weighs 1.7kgs! The base has polished pontil and has been ground flat. Its has 4 hoops with incised cuts which are in columns.  No sig.
I have asked a few glassys and i have had pos Czech, Scandi and Keith Murray S&W, so im at a loss on this one.
Any ideas? TIA Wolfie

I'd have said a much more recent production than the Murray period - hoops make me think of Finland.      Does it have a lead glass ring?
Had a look through Bill Geary's book, Leslie Pina, Miller's, but not coming up  -  sorry.

I have its smaller brother somewhere - just one ring - and I have always assumed it is Polish.

I haven't seen it before, so I can only speculate. Might be German given the thick clear crystal look, in which case Nachtmann would be my first suspect.

think I'd agree with Astrid's rationale.

What Ho! I just heard back from Nachtmann and its not one of their designs, any other ideas guys? @Paul S its very thick so it doesn't ring very well but I would say it is lead glass.

70´s Josephinenhütte might be another option. I already had a ramble though Pamela´s site
Glas-Musterbuch - to no avail unfortunately, but I knew there was some at least remotely similar
stuff there which made me think towards that direction:

Wow, you got Nachtmann to give you any info? How did you accomplish that miracle? I'm sceptic anyone there even knows anything about non-current designs... If it's one of the smaller German companies, it's even more difficult to ever attribute it, there were hunderds of those until the '80s, almost no catalogue info survives.
