Thanks Sue.
Can you give me some more info on St John? Dr Google is of no help.
Kind regards,

Glass / Here's a strange one

I recently picked up this vase from a local thrift store because it intrigued me. A quick internet search located another one just like it, which sold for a pretty penny when attributed to Blenko.

I am pretty certain it is not Blenko (although if I'm wrong it could be tangerine colour). The interesting part is the texture, which looks and feels like orange peel. It is lightly cased in clear glass over the dark orange, and has a rough pontile at the bottom.

It is quite large, measuring 12" w x 8"h with a 4" opening (30cm x 20cm x 10cm)

Does anyone have any suggestions? I have no idea where to even start!

Thank you for your very good point, Lustrousstone. As it happens I have answered my own question. The vase is new and chinese in origin, being sold by high end decor stores. I'm relieved to have the puzzle solved!

I hope we've helped to get you hooked.  ;D
VSL did this type of glass indeed, as mentioned before but I haven't found anything similar.

Unless it's a marriage, VSL did work with some silversmiths but not any English ones to my knowledge, just a couple of Belgian, German and the odd French one.

What height & diameter in cm please and the amount of rows/layers/lines of decor? Does it have a number on the bottom?

Hi Steven

No problem, your challenge now though is to find the other 25 letters ;D
