ID Help for small Twist Vase
« on: July 19, 2013, 11:53:30 PM »
Piece was purchased in Finland in early 1970s. Not sure it was made there, but the only lead I have. Stands 6 inches tall (15.2cm).
Body has a slight twist to it, and exterior  has an etched design of lines and balls. Is crystal with light pink and green shading.
Unsigned with a highly polished base. Thnx for looking.

Czech may also be a contender for this piece.

Definately Czech :) - I have a very similar one (without engraved decoration) >> Link

Made at one of the Nova Bor plants, and sometimes seen with "Borocrystal" label...
