Details for this Swedish vase
« on: September 03, 2006, 12:16:18 PM »
This should be any easy one for somebody. Can anyone tell me about this vase?

Stands about 10" high and is, I'm 99.9% sure, Swedish. It has the remains of the label in place (shown below ~ characters on the second line are 'BO...), which should help!

Many thanks, John.

Hi John.  :)  Aseda, Sweden - Bo Borgstrom.

Thanks very much for that Max ~ I didn't think it'd take long!

The information is much appreciated,  :D  John.

If someone could confirm this was made without the bubble in base, that'd be good.  I'm feeling nervous since my WF debacle earlier.  :roll:

I wouldn't call it a debacle Max, but I have to say that I wasn't too sure about it ~ not that I'm an expert!  :?
I think I've made a mistake too this morning at a car boot sale. Picked up what I thought was a large WF jug but, now I've got it home and compared it to other pieces, I'm having severe doubts. Still, it was only £2! May be on the WF board later!
Are you saying that the Aseda vase would normally have a bubble in the base?
Thanks again, and keep smiling!  :D  John.

:lol:  John, jugs are notoriously hard to get right IMO, I tend to leave them well alone now.  I look forward to seeing it.

For me, this vase is the right shape, the right colour and has the right sticker - then I checked the sticker in a book and posted.  However, I rooted through a bit more and could only find examples with bubbles in the base.  Then I panicked.  :lol:

It's probably fine, but I'm doing belt and braces from now on.  :wink:

Thanks again Max.
I've had a very quick look through the WF catalogues for the jug but haven't found it yet. The thing that's got me most doubtful is that I thought it was Sapphire Blue but, when I compared it to a Sapphire vase which I know is WF, it looks a very slightly darker blue. Will try to get it on WF site later this evening or, more probably, tomorrow ~ got a few bits (including this vase) to get ready to list on eBay for this evening. Don't worry, I won't quote you! :lol:
Thanks again for your help, John.

Max, there was a red one the same shape and style with a pierced bubble in the base, on eBay a while ago but it was listed as Hoymantort (of whom I can find nothing except eBay listings! :roll:) (Next question: who is Hoymantort?)

Anne ~ have just looked for Hoymantort on eBay and come up with nothing, with a similar result on the whole of the web! Is my spelling incorrect, or have they all gone from eBay now?  :?  Cheers, John.

Yes they are all expired sales, but if you put Hoymantort into GOOGLE you'll see their cache of the listings (click the Cached button below the search) - all the images have gone but I saved one for my own reference when I saw them originally which is what I checked against before my earlier post. As the image is someone else's copyright I cannot post it here or in the Gallery.
