Lamp base and blue vase
« on: August 17, 2006, 09:24:15 AM »
Dear All

A recent buy in Geneva at the big charity shop (they should give me a loyalty card!).  

If this link doesn't work - I'm giving up   ::)

Mod: Image gone, please restore to board, thanks

There are only two pictures on the above at the moment as I have computers and cameras crashing all around me and only now do I know how utterly CRAP these things can be  :-\

Thanks for your patience.

I've put two more pics on the link (could you let me know if it doesn't work please).  Would be very interested if anyone knows anything about them.  the little gold vase is about 10cm high, the amber and clear (candleholder?) 25cm, lampbase 35cm and the blue vase 20cm.

 :D

Link works fine, the lamp looks to me like a converted vase with a Scandinavian look about it, but could be wrong, certainly wouldn't be the first time.

I agree with Paul. Sure it's a converted vase and it does look scandi.

Hi Flick,

The blue vase I think is Aseda. I don't have a clue about the gold one.
The two tone piece l have seen somewhere, but can't remember where, so I will have a look around today.
Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....

Thank you all

There is the outline of a label on the lamp near the base, it's a narrow rectangle just over an inch long.  I thought scandi of some type, which as a real beginner is a compliment to your teaching.  Bet I come home with some more glass today, I'll try and make it unusual.

 :D
