Hello,
I have this vase, I find it hard to read the marking.
It says "4-9 K. something xs383"
I hope anyone knows what it says.
Maybe someone knows the maker and furnace?

Kind regards
Jonas

Hello,
It has an interesting base, it has a hole in the mittle.
My interest are Murano and Swedish glass and they don't have holes..:)

It is very well made.

Ahhh but not all Chinese glass is of lesser quality Jonas. :) Take a peek at this example for starters.... https://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,3385.0.html

The style of the glass reminds me of some Nuutajarvi work.

Thank you, I will look at that.
I know I have seen it before, if it is a Finnish signature they usually are all very hard to read...:)

It's the complex bubbly bits and internal work that remind me of Nuutajarvi.
I've been shown bits at fairs by a friend who is a serious Nuutajarvi collector.
