Unknown nailsea cased vase.
« on: June 26, 2014, 12:16:58 AM »
Hi,
A heavy thick glass vase about 16cm high, 7cm across the base & weighs 680kg.
Unfortunately its not signed but is a lovely quality.
The closest I've found so far is Stuart, Murano, Lafiore, but none quite fit.
There're no seams i can find on it.
The pattern is flat on the surface except near the top, where it can be felt.
The whole thing is a silky smooth feel.
The bottom looks flat but caves in the middle to a broken pontil.
Would love to know if anyone has any ideas or leads i could look into who could have made it.

Looks very modern to me. I think you can rule out Stuart and Murano. The term you are looking for is pulled feather - not Nailsea

Thanks Lustresstone.
I thought it wasn't old, but still like to know who likely made it, if its possible to find out. Do you think it could be Chinese?
 I'm reading up on Nailsee as i type. It was on another site someone said it was nailsea, when i did an image search, lots of 'pulled feather', you see my dilemma, lol.
Is there a way to correct the post do you know?

It looks similar to some of the Will Shakspeare stuff  - similar pattern and slightly frosted looking glass - are his usually signed?
It might be worth looking into! not sure of the base though.

Thanks orange glass & chriscopper. I've looked but can't find a signature but it certainly looks very like other will shakespear.
