Cobalt blue flower vase - ID = Oberglas Austria
« on: July 12, 2015, 01:32:45 AM »
Is it possible for you to help me about the ID of this vase?

I bougth it (in a oberglass box) in a flea market as a oberglas vintage and rare vase.

Thank you!

Pouvez-vous m'aider pour l'identification de ce vase?

Je l'ai acheté (dans une boite oberglass) dans un marché aux puces comme étant un vase oberglas rare et antique.

Hiya, welcome to the glass message board.

Your first question is not too hard. The vase is in its original box, as it was made by Oberglas Austria. I would not give too much weight to "vintage" and even less to "rare". As far as I know these date from the 1970s and were mechanically produced.

I agree with Ivo but would, however, love to see pictures of the box!  :)
Just for the record as I have never seen one. (plenty of vases tho')
