Krosno?
« on: October 07, 2017, 05:16:55 PM »
I'm sure I've seen this vase before, but can't remember where and when.
Is this Krosno?

No, I'm afraid not. It's contemporary Chinese, as seen in TKMaxx.

Krosno is a bit of a difficult area to define. It's actually an area in Poland where a lot of glass is made, but I think it can come from different makers.
I used to see plenty of labelled Krosno in new household decor shops, but then the labels changed to read LSA, which is an importing and exporting company.

TKMaxx is a huge household and clothing discount shop. It sells new goods that are surplus elsewhere, or ends of lines, or the last of last year's fashions.
It isn't a glass maker, but it does sell a lot of new Chinese glass.

Butbutbut, it can't be that new. The bottom has to many rather old scratches.

I've been seeing these in that shop for the last ~  4-5 years.
The shelves are not clean, moving things around in the shop will create marks, customers break things and drop them. "Age-related wear" can appear quite rapidly.
It's not a very posh shop. ;)
Sometimes, unscrupulous people will make marks with sandpaper to indicate "age".

I do have to keep quite a close eye on what turns up there. :) Lots of it does make its way into fairs or auctions, described as something else.

Many years ago, I bought quite a lot of very nice Beranek there.  ;D

There are several different versions of your vase, but they all have huge "lattice" bits.
