Brilliant Yellow Green Vase with Protrusions
« on: January 02, 2013, 02:30:00 AM »
I have a 'toxic' looking yellow/green clear glass vase with a pressed regular bubble pattern around the top half. There are also two very slightly raised circles on the outer surface of the glass, these are opposite each other. Height is 20cms and it is 7.5cms across the base. Width across the protrusions is approx 9.5cms. I would appreciate any help in identification. Happy New Year to everyone!

If the "bumps" are very evenly distributed in rows I would suspect this might be Japanese.  I have noticed that whilst Murano bumps tend to random placement, Japanese often are very carefully arranged in a symmetrical pattern.  No idea of the real maker unfortunately.

It looks like it may be uranium glass, if so it will glow bright green when exposed to UV light. It may have been made by Riihimaen Lasi (Riihimaki) but I have not be able to find this particular design.

I suspect it's one of those things that looks like it should be uranium glass but isn't.

Ross, I think you are thinking this is hot worked, but I think it's actually mould blown

Hello everyone, I have managed to get hold of a UV light and it is not uranium glass. I was rather hoping it might be! I also did think it may have Scandinavian roots because it just had that look about it, however, I will keep an open mind. Thanks everyone for the input. Chris
