Thanks for the replies, both. Kralik looks like a good possibility.

Itís interesting to see the variations in wall thickness in the tumblers shown in the catalogue. They could obviously make a tumbler with relatively uniform thinish walls so presumably the ones with thicker walls at the bottom are designed to be deceptive to a degree.

Thanks for the reply i thought it looked similar to Winston Decanter set green maybe??
I take your point, I  do not have any pieces to hand so i might just be thinking generally
that the shape and color made me think Scandinavian?? Thanks

The problem I have is that I have lots of Holmegaard glass as I love Per Lutken and Michael Bang designs.  I think I have at least five different greens - so it would be nice if you specify which green you mean.  Or perhaps show an example of the colour with an Holmegaard item.

Glass / Small Green angular or hooped glass vase???
« Last post by LEGSY on May 15, 2024, 12:07:12 PM »
Lovely weighty little vase seems to have a Scandinavian color green in my mind
i think Holmegaard used a similar shade. The vase only measures 10 x 8.5 cm
yet has a good weight love to know if anybody recognizes the style or shape at all
thanks.

There's a similar pair shown here, on this reliable website, in the Kralik section in the Floriform pattern,

There are several in this Sowerby catalogue which appear to have the same heavily moulded base but no sizes given.

Glass / Origin of Lily Vase?
« Last post by SNJ on May 14, 2024, 09:16:17 PM »
Question... is this lily vase more likely to be Bohemian / Czech or English? I suspect the former but I'd be interested if anyone demurs.

One of a pair, roughly 8" tall, slight uranium glow to the feet.

Thanks!

Thank you both for taking a look and commenting, this is fairly large by comparison and holds over half a pint, nearly 300ml or 10 fl oz.
