Pressed glass stars and circles vase, unknown
« on: May 27, 2006, 09:56:21 PM »
I've had this vase for quite a while now. Curiosity got the better of me so here it is.

(http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/albums/userpics/10011/thumb_Picture%2047982.jpg)

It measures 10.25 inches high and has four mould lines running up the vase.

Any ideas? Thanks.  :)

It reminds me of some Rindskopf pieces (Czech). The pattern is very similar, and the shape too, but I cannot find the actual item in my catalogues.

Sorry cant help you with the glass, but you've got a nice piece of Victorian gaudy welsh pottery behind it, is it a jug and bowl?

Thanks for looking Glen, quite a nice big piece it is too.  8)


That's a fake (probably Chinese) jug and bowl behind it in the style of Masons with a dragon handle. My dad bought it thinking it was the real thing. It has an "Ironstone China" mark.
