Hi Robby, welcome to the GMB.  It's always best to include shots of the rim and base, as the way they are finished can help point to a particular maker.

Having said that, I'm pretty sure this kind of bark textured vase has not yet been positively identified, although I think Japanese, Austrian or German is most likely.  I don't think it is by Ingrid though.  The Ingrid bark vases tend to have flat ground and polished rims.

Personally I suspect these are of Japanese origin, but I've yet to find any proof!  :)

Hi Robby,
welcome to the board!

Your vase isn't Ingrid Glas.
I think it is Japanese -- is it the same shape as the one to the right? >> Link
(The Label with the "S" is not Sea glasbruk; here is another one with the same label, but with Japan added http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,50256.0.html)

edit: Wayne was faster ;)
edit2: I personally have never seen any two-coloured Ingrid glass piece...

Michael, I think you mean to include this link too?

(I was a bit baffled for a while)  :)

Great that you found the proof I was after, cheers, I've been looking out for a labelled one of these for a while!

Yes Wayne, sorry -- I have corrected it in my previous post.
I have the narrow version in my collection, so I think it is very nice to have it attributed to a country (the maker behind that "S" seems to be unidentified so far)

Thank you Robby for the additional pics -- a pic of the underside of the base is usually more helpful ;)
Mine has a ground base, but not shiny...

Just realised I've had one of these with the "S" label (without Japan), pics attached for reference.  Shiny polished base on this one.  I imagine the label is probably an importer/retailer, going off what usually seems to be the case with labelled Japanese glass.

Just came across this other thread too, which shows the wider version with the same label:

Oh, very good -- vase and label in one thread ;D

So base finish seems to vary; here is mine which is nicely polished, but not perfectly shiny...
