Totally unconvincing signature on glass as far away from Vasart as you can get! Any ideas what it is?

Me too - the seller surely can't believe they have original signatures?

That's truly desperate. - note how they never say that it IS Vasart, just that it's ETCHED Vasart. It reminds me of the time someone sold an XBox Box - as in the box for an Xbox.

We've discussed these on here before in green and amber, one of the Annes has one I think. The general conclusion was Czech

I see someone's sent them a comment and this has been included. The questioner thought it was Sowerby, BTW...

Perhaps the signature was not read correctly?

It looks like "WAS ART" to me. :!:  :!:  :D

Christine's right, these were discussed way back in Feb.  I've tried adding the link ("2 mini Czech (?) vases") but without success.  Marcus confirmed that they were Czech.  

The "Vasart"  :lol:  one appears to be neodymium.

I've just bought a third one in a different colour again.  Just wonder how many colours these were made in?
