Dear Cheri and all!
Please excuse for joining you only now in this thread - we had a soccer evening and goodbyed our daughter leaving for Shanghai tomorrow for two or three years of work there at the same time.
Cheri, it is sad that you do not hold the orignal in hand to see the difference between a possible fake and an original. I come back to this further at the bottom.
Perhaps you have noticed that I have got that flat shaped toohttp://www.pressglas-pavillon.de/tafelaufsaetze/00657.html
the shape is not the problem I think
what bothers me more is the quality of glass...
I think I do not have to translate much of SG's article here, just let me point out, what is also written in his Korrespondenz:
VEB Sachsenglas is the follower of Walther after war - same place, same people, same moulds
GDR would not have given order to produce their moulds elsewhere, it was GDR who needed the foreign exchange for own production, why produce in France then?
The glasswork in France named producing the icebear is unknown to us
And now I return to the top: if you had both vases in front of you, you perhaps and most certainly could judge whether the shiny one is fake.
I've got the Hollaenderin more than twice, but I strongly believe THIS one is a fake:http://www.pressglas-pavillon.de/tafelaufsaetze/00666.html
there are differences in the proportions in a 'my'-scale and I guess this one was made after a (help please! :oops: ) 'redone' mould
I can see it only if I place this one next to her:http://www.pressglas-pavillon.de/tafelaufsaetze/00644.html
The thread LENI was so kind to add was more on the surfaces, whether pink glass or coated or what else - IVO did a great job in translating what Mr. Mauerhoff wrote on that - thank you again for that!
Dear Cheri, I shall never dare to judge from your photo, but to me it maybe could be :? a newly made in Malaysia or somewhere else
