A tough one!
« on: December 26, 2012, 01:45:19 PM »
May be nothing but I thought I'd ask the question anyway,

An Xmas present given to me yesterday, my mother knows me so well!

Lilac cased in clear, square/rectangular vase, ground flat base, each side has an 'onion effect' pattern. Heavy item with a smooth, irregular rim.

Measures 150mm wide, 120mm tall and 60mm deep.

Thanks all and Merry Xmas :-)

Small addition - the narrow sides, near the top have an indent that looks like the glass has been pinched or a mark from some grips

  Hi,
        Believe these to be of modern /newish production, possibly Polish or Chinese. Have seen them for sale in various colours at T K Maxx and a few Charity Shops sell them in there New Products range. Hope this helps.

                                          Warmest Wishes,

                                               John

Hi, I have the same vase and have seen it attributed to Ravenshead, but can't find it in their catalogues.

Best wishes
Neil

Ravenhead is merely a brand name these days, so John's answer might still apply
