Glass / Striped vase with Foreign label - Chinese, Murano or other ?
« Last post by Scott13 on Today at 08:24:37 AM »

Hi, found this attractive little vase with its label.

Murano or in the style of Murano ( ie Chinese ) or even Japanese ?

Im not sure for how long beyond the immediate post war period these labels were used.

Ht - 16cm ( 6.5 )

Any thoughts appreciated- thanks for looking  :)

Welcome to the GBM.

The signature is Peter Layton.

Probably fairly early production with that pontil finish, possibly 80s or 90s at a guess.

Interesting piece, hope this helps.

 I agree with you 100% Sue but when I saw this vase I fell in love with it..........
A present for my sister who lives in North Carolina and only 5.65 postage !
I may get to see it sometime.

Yes Paul i can only count on your second opinion really, 1800 onwards, i'm limited to 1970's and earlier books plus a bit of experience.

I've seen this already, I do not think it has anything to do with Malta.
Beyond that, all I can suggest is some sort of studio piece.
No ideas as to origin, could be the states, could be Europe.
No idea as to age, whatsoever.

Glass Paperweights / Re: Stourbridge or Czech?

Another ice pick weight with a blue Victorian lead look to the glass, lots of base wear and a rough pontil.

Lots of frit and seeds in the glass and measures 3 inches in diameter and 2 1/2 inches in height.
