Can anyone help identify this vase?
« on: October 09, 2006, 04:02:04 PM »
I found this in a local shop, it struck me as unusual, but I have no idea about its maker... anyone got any idea?

I should say it's about 6 and a half inches in height..

Well I'll start the ball rolling - all I can say about it is a) it's nice, I like it and b) it looks Scandi to me, more specifically Finnish however it's not a shape I've seen before so it's just a feeling - nothing concrete.  Hopefully someone more knowledgable like Ivo will come along with a more positive suggestion :-)

so it must be a local vase, for local people...

sory no clue - the colour could be German or Norwegian - or, or.... If it were Finnish someone would have recognised it by now.

The top looks to me rather like a hyacinth vase - size sounds about right too. But that may be an over-functionalist response...
