I played with the notiaon of Okra myself. I don't know nearly enough about Loetz or Kralik or Dugan or any of the older makers of this style of thing to comment - I was put off the older makers by the slight wonkiness of the swags.
I think it's too fine (as in thin glass) for Okra though.
So I kept my trap shut, 'cos it's an easy one  :P Keith and I'm clueless.
But if John's going to be brave enough to stick his neck out, I'm putting mine on the line too. ;D

It's too fine  (as in thin glass) for John Ditchfield too... possibly. ::)

oooh!
Pats on the head for John and me. ;D 8) ;D
This has been fun  ;D (for me at any rate), Keith.
It's a pleasing sort of smugness getting the right answer when it's just guesswork.

I've just got the one bit of Okra myself - a Merlin's Web vase in the same shape as this - also very cheap, but badly damaged.
(I know it's Okra and Merlin's Web because it's written on the label on the base.)
