Turquoise glass vase - ID = Chinese
« on: June 10, 2014, 06:41:31 PM »
Any thoughts please on origin of this vase. Turquoise with white lining, square section base. Appears to be some age related wear to base. All suggestions much appreciated

This particular one is Chinese, but the model this solifleur was based on dates around 1900 in southern Germany. It has proved to be one of the most popular vase models of all time and I get the impression it has never been out of production for more than 100 years.
