Vase Red w/ white swirls, 2 old paper stickers to base - ID?
« on: August 01, 2006, 05:48:35 PM »
Hello - here's a vase my husband bought ages ago - it was very cheap, very dirty and had two old foil/paper stickers to the base.  I've not had any joy researching it - I'd be hugely grateful (as always!) for any help.  It's 7.5in/19cm tall, has an interesting flared rim cut into three sections and has white blobs of glass running through it.  There are two foil paper stickers - one in the shape of a crown saying 'HAND MADE GENUINE HANDBLOWN' and the other 'Daysun Foreign'.  Photographs below TIA ...

I would guess, going on the style of the vase and the name of the glassworks, that Daysun was/is a Chinese company.

Hiya Nic, I was wondering if it might be Chinese ... I thought Daysun might be an importers name perhaps?

Hi

There is a Daysun - Day-Sun located in Taiwan.

All I can find of there recent products is lenses for sunglasses.

The company has been going since 1970s so it may be worth some slight investigation.

That's also about the sum total info I've managed to ascertain in the meantime Adam! As the famous saying goes 'life's too short to stuff a mushroom' so instead I'll deduce from the condition of the labels and the amount of dirt on the vase originally that it's 10 years + old and Chinese.  Quite pretty nevertheless but I'll probably out it on eBay ... thanks mucho for your help as always :-)
