Would like to know maker of this vase
« on: May 07, 2006, 02:55:25 AM »
This vase measures 6 1/4 inches in height and 5 1/4 inches across the top. The base measures 3 1/4 inches across. The pontil has been ground and polished. It is red in color with white opalesence on the ruffled edge. Vertical rows of round bulges that descend in size towards the top encircle the entire vase. I would very much appreciate any information about this vase. Thank you in advance.

Gasp!! Ivo  :shock:  :wink:

Definitely not Fenton  :)

Fenton's hobnails are pointed on the end and they are never in vertical lines.  The hobnails are staggered in subsequent rows.

I figured it is so garish and patterned it must be Fenton and I knew if it wasn't you'd jump!  :D  :D  :D
