Help me Identify This TEXTURED Tree Trunk Vase

(1/5) > >>

svazzo:
Anyone know what kind of vase this is? or maker?

Looks to me mold made, etched, then smoothed out along the ridges. It also has gold flecks in it. I believe it is old, since it has water residue on the bottom that has yellowed.
Any thoughts?

svazzo:
I took some close up pics so you can see more of the texture.

I guess no-one knows Javier. What an extrodinary item - I've certainly never seen anything like it.

Etched ? The surface is satin texture ?

I would have thought Czech as they have a lot of experience with high quality molded but the gold dust suggests Murano. But then then Czechs were very experimental.

I think you do it a diservice calling it tree-trunk style - I would say more like a rouched drape / Austrian Blind. My guess late 40s / early 50s going by the style. What I call Hollywood style.

Ivo:
I would guess Italian from the graceful gold surface finish.

Hello Peter,
Glad to hear from you again... I think you are so right about calling it Hollywood Style. It certainly has that rich drapery look. I just wish you could feel the texture. I could only describe it as what a cats tonque feels like, if you have cats :D
