Aubergine Glass Vase with Motif Design - Unknown
« on: August 21, 2013, 01:30:17 PM »
Purchased this beautiful glass vase most recently but unable to find any information during my research.   I found other vases with' motifs, such as holmegaard and Wedgewood.  Any help appreciated.

Better finished?    I'm not sure what is meant by this, however, do agree that it does not appear to be Dartington from what I have seen.  The centrepiece within what looks like a daisy has a concave polished smooth finished, where the ones I have seen in the Dartington motifs have a knobbly appearance.

Hi Rach,  The motif in your comparison on ebay is not the same.   I am very much enlclined to agree with Christine, that it's not Dartington, however, do understand why you may think it is.  Paying attention to the motif, I'm not sure whether it is a flower.  If it is in the shape of a flower, the petals look rather slanted, which makes think it might be something other than that.
