This pair of vases were brought to New Zealand from Japan in the early 1960's or late 1950's by my uncle and hence are assumed to be Japanese of age unknown - there are markings but nothing that Identifies as a manufacturer simply A model and a version which I assume relates to the pattern - these vases are 22cm high, 5.5cm at top opening, 6.5cm at the base and 10cm at widest point the flowers appear to be raised glass as I have seen on Murano style adornment  I have looked extensively and found nothing like them on the net and wish to identity any information possible ie maker or region of manufacture or if such a style has a name - anything is useful thank you
I have a small piece I believe is Czech.  Can you help ID and do you know a glass maker?
Many thanks,

Specs: 3.5" width x 3.25" height  weight 1 lb
Smooth Clear Polished base

Chinese glass does have properly polished pontil marks these days, and your vase has no uranium in it. China is the most likely origin. It's really not well made enough to be any high end name.

Sorry, I don't believe for a second that this is chinese with the polished pontil, uranium salts used in the glass etc. There's nothing cheap about this piece. I'm convinced it's Italian, but thanks for your imput.
Very happily.  ;D
Fair enough!

As the consensus seems to ne it's Loetz I'm happy to leave it in this section.

I don't know how accurate floral decor usually is, but although the stamen and pistil are right, these are lacking the tube and ovaries that fuchsias have at the top of the flower, and probably the inner petals (I'm rubbish at flowers, but my parents had a giant fuchsia bush in their garden when I was growing up, so it's one of the few I can easily recognise).

I have several different fuchsia patterned glasses and none of them have the bits you refer to Nic.

Thank you for adding the images of both, it's useful to see, and confirms mine as being Tarbekklaas, as you previously said.

Generic design, chunky/large and heavy with low production standards - I would be looking at China first.
