Glass / Re: Studio vase with purple spots

I'm not really sure there is any connection here but have you checked Sanders and Wallace?  Cannot see how that signature could be linked but there is a vase on ebay - too long link and don't know how to shorten - that has canes and a similarish way of signing.  I don't think there's a link but there might be ... shortened to initials would be AS and DW

on ebay now as  Sanders & Wallace Vintage Glass Vase 1984

That's a superb colour and so unusual.  Really lovely to have in a collection.  I suspect it's not a colour easily found.

I hate when that happens when visiting an area. So annoying.

Solved this one.

Maker is Kathryn Roberts, based in Brecon, Wales. 

I might well take it along next time I go as I know where her shop is (wanted to go in last time but as Brecon is closed most of the week, I missed out) If you do ever want to go to Brecon (it is lovely), I recommend not going on a Monday or Tuesday as most shops, etc are shut.  Many are shut on Wednesday too.  Lots of confused tourists wandering about!

It only has vague similarities admittedly, but it reminded me of one I have like this one - Poschinger:

Mine is just like this one though, so I don't know if they made any variations on a theme as it were - i.e. plain red stripe and no bubbles type thing like yours.  It might be worth investigating further though.

Picked this half pint mug up today as it looked quite interesting.
My knowledge of pressed glass is not that great.
I have a couple of pressed glass books but could not see an image of my glass or a date.
I would be interested to hear any comments.
The height is 110mm, four and a quarter inches.
It seems to be a three part mould and the body is a bit out of kilter with the base.
Check here Greg:

Brown vases on fourth shelf down left hand side - there is one the same shape and I think with the spike bubble but shorter?
Thanks, it's a little hard to make out from the photo. The centre of base is hollow. As you see the spike shape in picture 2, that whole area is hollow.

There are a few Scandinavian makers with indented bases, although the spike shape to this one is slightly different. I think Aseda produced pieces with similar bases from memory.

I'll have a look into Reijmyre, thanks for the suggestion.

I did post it on designlasi a while back, but that was just before the site sadly closed, which was a real shame.
Is the base hollow?
That's fairly unusual, but I did have a Reijmyre piece that had a base like that, so they're a possibility too. Here's the old listing of that with some photos.
Glass / Large Cylinder vase with inverted base - Poss Scandinavian / Aseda..?
« Last post by Greg. on Yesterday at 11:04:49 AM »
Hi All,

Hoping that someone might recognise this tall steel blue cylinder vase, which is clear cased with a conical shaped foot. The clear base has a distinctive inverted spike.

Plenty of age related wear to the base.

Very tall and heavy, measures 40cm tall.

I did wonder if these may have been produced by Aseda especially given the base, however have been unable to find another example.

All thoughts welcome.

Many thanks,

This is a piece I picked up recently. It is signed, although I am having troubles making out what the name is. Perhaps someone is able to read it, or perhaps even recognize it?

The vase is approximately 4.5 inches tall. I tried making a very clear picture of the signature... hopefully that turned out.

Any help is appreciated!
