Cranberry cased vase
« on: January 02, 2018, 06:31:19 PM »
Hit a brick wall with this one, several companies made vases with a similar shape but who made this one?

It is 15cm tall and weighs over a kilo so quite hefty for the size, polished pontil mark.

Riihimaen Lasi made this vase: http://www.designlasi.com/en/content/vase-1379-riihimaen-lasi-en
in a couple of sizes but the profile of the base is different, cranberry is not a typical colour for them and wouldn't expect to see a pontil mark either.

Mario Pinzoni designed this vase for SVDA https://i.pinimg.com/originals/a1/de/94/a1de9422d770671d1982d6c790afcf31.jpg
but again the profile of the base is different.

Johansfors dabbled with a similar shape but not found this particular one.

Any ideas?

John

My guts think it might be a Zweisel-ly sort of shape.

I am merely reporting what they think, I don't know if I endorse their thoughts or not. They are acting quite independently. :)

Thanks Sue, had a look around and not found anything that fits re Zweisel, you should always trust your guts though.

I don't think i've ever seen cranberry Zweizel, but I'm sure I've seen a blue one this shape, and the colours are equally bright. That was all my guts came up with and they got stuck on that, I'm afraid I have nothing else to suggest. :'(

colourwise: Chribska? Joska?

Thanks Pamela, I had not thought of Chribska, just looked through Jindrich's catalogues but no match there. See what you mean about colour though I have never seen a bit of Chribska with a polished pontil mark.

I would look at Magnor too. A colour they used and also the shape.
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.

Interesting suggestion Della, not found anything with this shape yet but you are right about their use of this colour, a large signed bowl went through one of the local auctions recently. Feels like the best lead so far, thanks.

What's really bugging me is the fact that I picked an identical one up, at the Glass Fair, and I can't for the life of me remember who it was attributed to (correctly, as I checked when I got back home)  :-\ Definitely Scandinavian and a well known (male) designer. Not Riihimaen Lasi Oy, is all I know for sure. Not much help, sorry.
My brain just isn't what it was  ::)
