Info Needed on Large Harrtil Vase
« on: July 13, 2013, 12:05:37 AM »
Stands 9 inches tall X 7 inches wide( 23 x 18 cm ) and weighs 5.5 lbs( 2.5kg ). Pink,yellow, and greenish swirls with internal netting.          I was thinking of listing this on ebay, but I must admit I know almost nothing about it. Is it a Harrtil vase? Is it less common because of its size and multicolor design? Is there a price range for this piece? I just do not want to misrepresent a piece in a listing or ask an unrealistic price.  Any info about age/designer/price..etc would be greatly appreciated. Thnx for looking

This a known Harrtil design, usually these are credited to Metalek. This colourway is nice but in the current market especially, prices are quite flexible, so it is hard to be precise,

Lovely! :)

I do think big pieces are rarer...
Possible designers are Milan Metelak, Milena Veliskova, Maria Stahlikova (but there may be more).
The simple shape of yours would point towards Metelak IMHO.

Here are some links to older threads with some more information:
