Smoke grey bulbous vase. ID please.

Hi All,

Can anyone give me a clue as to where this vase originates from, please?
20.5cm (8") in height.
The base is slighty concave.


 :shock: Click to enlarge :shock:

As always, many thanks in advance.  :D
If I know, I'll comment. If I think I know, I'll have a go. If I have no idea, I'll just keep quiet and learn from others, so the next time I'll know.

I really like this one, Della.  I don't really comment on too many pieces, but if you're interested in putting it up for sale.........

I'm not sure but I think this one is by Zwiesel. Smoke vases were produced by many German firms in the seventies - it was a very popular colour.

Thanks Ivo,

I will do a litle scouting around. I actually didn't even consider Zwiesel  :oops:

Nancy,
If I decide to sell, you will be the first to know. This vase is actually one that I have had for ages and I came across it in the attic yesterday, whilst looking for something totally different.  8)
