Iridescent Pink & White Cylinder Vase Id Help Please
« on: February 18, 2018, 02:18:08 PM »

This is unsigned, but very well made.
Pontil scar to the base, but not sharp.
Does anyone have an idea, please?
8.5" high
2.5" diameter
(Sorry if you look in Sue, I know pink isn't your colour  :P )

TIA
Della

I took a sharp intake of breath and steeled myself, Della.
I'd had my coffee. I was feeling brave.  ;D
And then it was a bit more fuchsia or cerise than baby pink, so it didn't scare me, too much. ;)

I very strongly suspect Phoenician. It's absolutely their style of decor and working of the colours, and the ratio of cylinder size, height to diameter, looks perfect. :)
Cheers, Sue (M)

See, now I thought Phoenician too,  :P Sue, but every piece I have had, or handled, has a flat polished base and is invariably signed.
Maybe this is just an exception to their norm  ???
Hopefully you are not too traumatised from popping in and seeing PINK!  ;D ;D ;D

I'm being kind to myself. (but then you shouted pink at me! :P  ;) )
I've got unmarked Phoneician.
One thing I've noticed is that the patterns in Phoenician can often be split into two sections, top and bottom, with one colour/pattern predominating in each, in a way the other Maltese glassmakers don't.
And they very often used that neat enamel ribbing at the bottom that stretches up into the design.

Phoenician with a snapped pontil mark is unusual, or am I just tired and can't remember any? Anthony Stern as maker?

It's not sharp, John, so it's possibly heat-finished. I can't find my little pot which might have a similar finish.
The bases I have looked at are not consistent, some are shiney polished, some are more satinated and rough.
I did find an image online, of something like my little pot which might well have ended up with a broken off pontil mark. It also shows one of the more complex colourways, normally beautifully executed pieces. Some Phoenician is really top stuff. As good as Anthony Stern.  ;D

Anthony Stern was my first thought I have to be honest.
Strange not to be signed though.
Example here with similar effect perhaps of the swirl stripes and a 'rough pontil' ? and it is a shape I think I've seen before from him.
