It is 14 cm high,length 12 until 14 cm,width 3,5 cm.
It weights 1,5 kilo.
Kind regards Lisa

Wow I've seen a few on the internet and it now makes perfect sense, but I just presumed it was a vase. It's ruby in colour, if you hold it up to the light there are quite a few tiny clear dots that look like bubbles.
I have just purchased two 'Niagara' bowls, one small and one large. From Mark Hills book Sklo I know they were produced by Mstisov or Karlovarske Sklo around 1960.

Each has an acid etched mark on the base - a circle with three vertical lines within the circle.

I have tried to photograph them but they are very feint.

Can anyone help to identify the acid etched marks?

I have asked Mdina and they say it is actually an apple! It was made in the 1980's and designed by the current owner Joseph Said.
Thanks for all your help!

Glass / Pressed Glass Black Hexagon Shaped Vase - Victorian?
« Last post by Greg. on Yesterday at 02:36:17 PM »
Hi All,

Would welcome any thoughts on this black pressed glass vase.

Hexagonal shape, with detailed moulding. Looks to have a Gothic/church window type design to each of the sides with a stippled background.

Flower moulded design to the base.

Measures 10.6cm tall and 6cms in diameter.

I have another black pressed vase which is a different design,  which I will list separately.

Many thanks,
