Hi all!

My local charity shop was having a sale (!) and I picked up this little lot for 15chf (about 6GBP) along with some fab W German stuff.

This I assume is an Empoli vase 32cm tall (thanks Ivo) but do you know the factory?


The next is a small (7cm high) clear square thing.  The mark on the bottom has been on this site before but I can't for the life of me find it again.  It's of three candles on a scroll:


A blue vase/glass 11cm high - poss part of a set originally?  has some nice marks where it was blown but I can't get them to show up - polished pontil.


An Alsterfors bud vase


I'll post the W German finds in the Caf.

I know this was long - but thanks very much for looking!

Hi Flick,

I think this is the thread that you are looking for:

Your impressed mark is much clearer, so hopefully it will help with an ID.
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....

Hi Della and Max

They are Definitely 3 candles and my pot is the same as yours. Now all we have to do is find out who made it!

Wrong colour for Rossini, so either Vetreria Etrusca or Toso Bagnoli. But hey there may have been others, too.
