Golden amber vase with spikes
« on: October 24, 2006, 09:48:49 PM »
Hello - me again  :D   Here is another one of hubby's finds, he bought it a month or so ago on one of his trips to buy milk and came back with this lovely vase.  I've Googled and checked all my books and haven't found anything similar to compare it to.  As you can see from the picture it has a spike on each side (from the side on the vase is very slim).  It's obviously very good quality, is nice and heavy and has a flat polished base with no markings unfortunately - any help would be appreciated as always ... TIA

Just from studying this single photograph, I'd say the vase is Murano, and a very nice Muranese at that.

Really?  Gosh - you know, I'd never even considered it might be Italian.  Thanks ever so for taking a peek.  Would you be interested in seeing it from a couple of other angles - I could post some more photos here if you'd be interested in taking another look?

Hi,

I think the label on the Glaskilian example is Lednické Rovne (see the labels section of 'C20th Factory Glass').

Czech, sounds more like what I was originally thinking I must admit.  Although the rim of this is very similar in shape and finish to a Poli vase I have.  It's a nice vase though - very tactile - I don't really mind who made it (well OK I don't want it to be Chinese)...

Probably designed by Jaroslav Taraba, who was known for vessels of this type. (1960's)
