It probably is Russian, I was looking at a site of russian metalwork recently and many items like this. Google tea glasses, I have forgotten the site now but it had A LOT.

Russian name is Podstakannik, the site had old ones and current production, it also sold old glasses for inside and offered new ones cut, etched or plain.

Thanks Frank

I will do that - If Tiger and yourself turn out to be right many thanks

I have a book on Russian metalwork - Faberge and factories like that including some plated ware - I guess I never thought of this kind of work being Russian, style wise that is.

Hi

This is a link to a podstakannik – which means ‘under the glass’ my vases are not like these really
link podstakannik

Here are two very similar WMF vases – the low metal base with floral decoration and the long engraved glass insert – My vases are not WMF but in the style of and I think looking at other pieces of the period?

Adam, this from my contact Jeff Smallowitz a long time collector of WMF and similar.
--------------------------------------------
Hi Peter,
Please excuse the tardiness of this reply.  After 2½ weeks, we returned from China last night.   I welcome your emails and will always share what I know.  In this case though, it’s not much.

I checked my usual resources and these vases have me stumped. They are not Russian and not from the fifties.  They appear to be old, German, and of the same period as Art Nouveau/Jugendstil WMF.  I agree with the first assessment you posted on April 27th about the possible manufacturers and suggest that this is another job for the silver salon forums at:   http://www.smpub.com/cgi-bin/ubb/Ultimate.cgi?action=intro&BypassCookie=true

They have a forum on silverplate and I bet they can help.  I’d be interested in the answer and will follow the thread.  You are welcome to post any or all of this.  Sorry I am not more help.
Regards,
Jeff
-------------------
Hope this helps
Pete

That is excellent news Peter. Thank you so much for contacting Jeff - please thank him for me when you email him next.

It is a relief to know they are not repro!

Thanks also for the link, I have never heard of the Silver Salon Forum - I will contact / post there a.s.a.p.

I've just found this listing, which shows a Kayserzinn mark.

Cheers, Sue (M)

And there WOULD have been peace on earth.

Hi Sue

This is the mark I kept on getting for Kayserzinn pewter while researching, the silver plate marks are different but still unlike the mark on my vases.

The only common denominator is the four digit number - I found that a few other German/Austrian companies used a similar four digit number system.

Thanks for looking

Appreciated
