Look on the Chinese wholesale websites, a search of "glass vase" on Alibaba brings up a hundred or so pages, take a look:

Hi John,thank you for the info and the links.My only thoughts and this is coming from someone who has only seen Chinese glass in furniture,homeware stores etc is the heavy weight for a relatively small vase and the polished finish on the base which i have not seen before.
Cheers Paul and thanks again John.

Thick walled and heavy in weight are typical of what I tend to see here, many are quite large too. They are often bright and really cheerful and generally great value. Flat polished bases are not that unusual, more often there is a ground but unpolished pontil mark too.

Domestic producers must be tearing their hair out at the competition, where the Chinese products fall down is overall quality, especially in terms of attention to detail and somewhat generic design.
