18" blue vase with clear foot. I have been advised that it may have been made by Swedish Company Gullasbruck c1950's designed by Arthur Percy. As I am not familiar with this glassworks can anyone offer advice ??

Hello, I've had a few pieces of Arthur Percy's work for Gullaskruf - I've not heard of Gullasbruck so I'm thinking perhaps that's a mistake (and I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong).  It's a little difficult to see from your photograph (because it's quite a small image) but yours looks similar but not the same as the Arthur Percy pieces I've had in the past (several different colours and sizes) - below is a link to two AP for Gullaskruf vases I have currently (the largest and the smallest sizes together) - as you can see they're not footed.

Hard to see in this size but it would more likely be either Italian (Empoli) or an Oignon de Jemeppe - one of the VSL factories in Belgium.

Hi Pip,
Thanks for that, Gullaskruf is probably the name that my source meant, the colour and flow of the vase is similar to the ones you have, which is where the association probably came from but as you say the clear foot makes me also think it unlikely that it is from this maker, so your help has probably ruled that out.

Ivo,
I've added more photos that will hopefully make it clearer, the vase is really quite delicate (hence the foot) whereas other Empoli pieces I have researched seem quite heavy - is this the case ? As for VSL, the vase certainly is onion shaped but the again the foot seems out of place.

I'll do a little more resarch based on your suggestions, if you have any more ideas PLEASE let me know.

Is the top part frosted? If so, then it's 1960s Murano glass by Carlo Moretti.

Hi Laura,
There is no frosting, I guess this rules out Murano / Moretti ?
