Opaque white glass bark vase
« on: September 05, 2006, 12:28:56 AM »
Hubby bought this because we both like textured glass and he was intrigued to find out what it might be.  It was extremely grimy when he brought it home so I don't think it's recent - the bark effect suggests 1970's to me ... does anyone know what this type of glass is called, who might have made it and when?  Cheers in advance for any input :-)

Ah, seen these before, but can't put a name to the face...

I would guess that the type of glass is milk glass...?

Cheers Nic & Ivo - Ingrid glas were busy with their bark effect stuff in the 1970's by the looks of it!
