Orange Swedish vase - identify please
« Reply #10 on: September 16, 2006, 10:39:01 AM »
Thank you for all the trouble you're going to for one small vase.

On my label the words run straight across, one word per line and don't follow the shape.

I am very dubious about labels. I passed on a nice little orange vase because it was described as Japanese and had a Grizelle (German porcelain)  label. Someone bought it for about $5, removed the label, described it as Italian, & sold it for something like $40.

I am pleased I found a similar shape, size & colour, and paid about the same as the buyer in Sweden. (Whew). It was my first attempt to buy something not recognisably 'old tat', much of which (when you include postage) is very overpriced.

So often I am caught between a newbie bidding to infinity & beyond, and someone who will pay anything to own whatever it is, that I think it will be some time before I buy again.

And I have learned that pontil marks aren't always round like navels.

Hi everyone,

I bought this vase at the weekend which I suspect may be Elme (helpfully, at the fair another stall had a peacock vase). It would be great if someone could confirm / refute :lol:
- the colouring is the same as the peacock vases
- it has a G Hardy import sticker
- the rim is finished like the peacock vases
- the base has similar characteristics to the orange vase originally posted.

Whole Thing
Base

Hi Robbo.  There is one currently on Tradera - attributed to Elme.  The colours and base match my peacock vases.
