Tall blue bottle vase help please.
« on: July 01, 2014, 03:22:50 PM »
Can anyone help me with this please, i'm not sure if it's new or old, the base has some wear, i thought at first it might be a Riihimaki vase, i've been searching for hours and found nothing like it.

It's 37cm in height and 6cm across the base.

They are modern, I sometimes see groups of three in different colours for sale, perhaps they were sold that way.

These are the Riihimaki variations: http://www.designlasi.com/en/content/decorative-bottles-still-nanny-en

but be careful buying them, there are modern very close copies around, the proportions of the copies are slightly out though, the genuine bottles are normally signed.

Thanks John it will get recycled, there could be a new section "Fakes and copies", i picked up what i thought was a Dartington vase today i think that's a copy it looks so similar though i'll put it on see what you think.
