Pressed glass vases - ID please
« on: September 21, 2006, 06:10:45 PM »
Finally got around to posting some of the items from some boxes of pressed glass that I was given some weeks back.  I've managed to ID lots of them (thanks to Anne, in particular, but also some of the great web sites owned by other members of the board).

2 vases.

#1  
Round.  Noughts and Crosses design.  Noughts are frosted.  24.5 cm tall, 15 cm rim diameter.  Shallow "birdbath base", no marks.

#2  
Squarish.  Lens type design.  24.5 cm tall 13 cm rim diameter diagonally, 10 cm across at narrowest.  Shallow "birdbath" base, press marked 'France'.  I know these are very common, but no idea who made them.

Lots more to come, but I'll try and space them out and not take your goodwill for granted.  Thanks in advance for any help, and I hope it may be helpful for other students too.

Thanks, both.  That's good to know, at last.  I've seen dozens of them at carboot sales and in Antiques Centres, but they were never identified.

Now for the noughts and crosses vase... :-)

Ta,
Chris

Bump!

Saw this same noughts and crosses vase in an RSPCA shop today.  

It had a ground and polished base rim (unlike my version) and what appeared to be an old Bohemia label (oval, with gold on a yellow background).  

The label was tatty and scrubbed flat, so I'm not 100% sure, but the colour and shape were right.

Libochovice, maybe??
