Laura, thank you once again for your effort in trying to ID this vase for me.So please no need to say sorry because you don't know.I will be listing it on eBay within the next few days, hopefully.Thats if I can think of what to write in the description etc.
David, no its not neodymium.That purple colour you see is only reflections.We have a burgandy trim on the outside of our house so the vase was picking up the reflection from that. The vase is a smoke grey colour . I managed to strike it lucky with the weather and light conditions on our verandah in those last pics, and repositioned the vase so as not to get as much reflection as before.
Julie..always greatfull for any help that is given.
