"Target" Bud Vase - Swedish, Finnish, Murano?
« on: August 28, 2006, 08:43:00 PM »
I am wondering who produced this heavy glass bud vase.  The colors remind me of the Italian flag, although my instincts tell me Scandinavian.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Charles.

They pop up quite frequently (and cheaply) on eBay.de - they're usually listed as 'Panton glasvaser' or somesuch.

But they sell well here in the UK.

Edit:
Ah, here we go:

AUCTION

Pip-
I paid $22 for mine at an antique store, hoping to resell to offset cost of a couple of Murano splurges.   :cry:  Life is hard.  Happy bidding, but if you don't win the auction for the pair being offered now on eBay Deutschland -- see edit to prior post -- contact me.
Charles.

What a co-incidence - watching the daytime TV bargain/antiques programmes today (as you do!) on Cash in the Attic they had a whole collection of these vases in various sizes and shapes.  The expert wrongly attributed them as Pukeberg - they were then taken along to Ron Wheeler for his consideration (from Artius Glass and contributor to this board) who correctly identified them as Walther.  Nice one Ron!
