gral glass
« on: July 27, 2006, 09:24:11 AM »
Hello from newbie!

This is a Gral vase (see sticker on vase) but I can't find any info on the manufacturer. Can anyone help please?

Also I have 2 vases etched "Christian Tortu" on the bases. I've never heard of them, has anyone on here?

Many thanks

Welcome to the board. Your Gral vase picture is too small for us to see the label, can you provide the link to the picture rather than it's thumbnail please.

This would appear to be the chappie for the other vases. He seems to be the French Lawrence Llewellyn Bowen www.christian-tortu.com/

Thanks Christine!

New to here AND Flickr site. Hope this works. Btw it's approx 30cm tall, polished pontil, colour in photo is correct.

Hi Flick & welcome.

As Christine says, a close up of the label would help.
I think you vase is from Gral glashutte, Germany.
According to Ivo Haanstra's book (Millers Glass fact file A-Z), in operation from 1930-1985.

(Second time I have referred to this book in one morning, so well worth the small investment)

Seems we have posted at the same time. Yes it is from the factory named above.  :lol:

Sorry about your keyboard, Flick.  :cry:

Definitely the label from Gral-glashutte GmbH, and just my 'cup-of-tea.'  :lol:
