Unusual Angel Vase
« on: February 28, 2014, 01:22:10 AM »
Hello Glass Fanatics, can anyone provide information on this vase?
It is rather thin walled and does not appear to have any great age.
I'm thinking reproduction of an old design but I have not been able to find out anything about it during my initial searches or even find another example.
The Angle appears to be singing and holding a bell, on the rear are it's slightly raised and open wings.

We have had questions asked about these before but I don't think they were identified.

OK Thanks John, I'll add a little more info. just in case.
The vase stands 6.25" high and 2.25" diameter, there are 3 very faint lines running down the entire length suggesting that it has been pressing in three sections. The two lines on the front are in line with the inside of each arm and the one at the rear runs down between the wings. Weight is appox. 7 ounces (200gms.)

Welcome to the board. Glass is not pressed in sections; it is the moulds that are in sections so they can be opened to release the item. It is also more likely that this is mould blown rather than pressed. Can you feel the design on the inside?
