Magnor vase?
« on: January 24, 2013, 08:41:20 AM »
Hi all,
I wonder if anyone can confirm that this is a Magnor vase.
I'm pretty sure that it is from the similar images I've found on Google
Many thanks

Hi,
some further information might be useful: a base shot, dimensions... Is the bubble open to the base? etc.

Hi Dirk,
The bubble is open to the base. Will measure up when I get home.
Thanks

Hi Wayne,
Yes,it is very similar isn't it. Was hoping it was a Tapio Wirkkala lol but it's still a very nice piece.
Many thanks

Hi,
The vase stands 13 cm high and has no discernable pontil mark
