Glass / Re: Heavy Swirl Vase ID
« Last post by glassobsessed on Today at 08:28:04 AM »
Seen a few of them over the years, made in China. Wear can build up quickly with such a heavy item, I don't think they were made that recently but no idea if they are ten, twenty or thirty years old.

Glass / Heavy Swirl Vase ID
« Last post by Penelope12 on Today at 07:28:58 AM »
I sold this vase a few years ago and have always regreted it. I always thought that it may have been Murano, but have never been quite sure. I would say that it was 1960''s going on the amount of wear and it had a highly polished base, so not your average Chinese. It stood at 8.5" inches tall and was very heavy at 2.6kg...any ideas?  ???

A clearer idea of the mark may occur if you get some putty or plasticine and mould it over just the letters.  The distracting patterns will then not occur.

Hello and welcome,

Would it be possible to show an image of the whole item please? Villeroy & Boch comes to mind with VB but it's just a guess, seeing the whole item might make all the difference.

Funny thing is, when this come on eBay the auction start price was £9.95, I really liked it and offered £35 my offer was refused and the seller wanted £55 which I refused. All week I was wishing I bought it and half way through the week went to make the offer of £55 but the "offer" option had been taken away as there were 10 watchers.
Nobody else placed a bid so I won it for £9.95... result. So a very happy bunny. And the moral of this story is a "Bird in the hand is better than two in the bush"..    ;D

Amazing it didn't get damaged and even more amazing how stupid some people can be! Glad it arrived ok, it's a very nice gift for your father.

I've seen the images in the links several times and always liked this piece. I guess it can still be used as a paper weight or just decorative item. Well done you!

Anne tique, thatís fantastic thanks again. I shall give this to my father to join his Derbyshire big cats. The article is great ( well the pictures are) canít read Word. Funnily enough I just found the monkey version on the Pres Glass Pavilion website.
This arrived in the post only wrapped in newspaper and a plastic bag. If it had been dropped it would have broken.
Thanks Mike
