Title: Pressed Glass Vase - ID = Crystal d'Arques
Post by: Tim on October 27, 2009, 11:39:34 AM
Hi does anyone know anything about this pressed glass vase? It is about 220mm tall and about 80mm diameter across the rim. It has a sort of inverted hobnail decoration, and a smooth polished bird bath base well. I would love to know who manufactured it and during which era it was made, etc. Many thanks.

Hi, this is really an appendix to my original topic, as I wasn't able to modify it. I have added some different images and I am hoping that somebody knows something about this pressed glass vase? It is about 220mm tall and about 80mm diameter across the rim and weighs in at about 1kg. It has a sort of inverted hobnail pattern, and a smooth polished bird bath base well. I would love to know who manufactured it and during which era it was made, etc. Many thanks.

I think this one is from Crystal d'Arques and quite recent.

Hi thanks very much, I had an idea it might be French or Czech.
