Title: Emerald? Pattern Moulded Vase - ID = Rosice
Post by: Minxey on May 15, 2010, 05:19:01 PM
I picked this vase up earlier today.  I was drawn to it because of it's weight 656grams.

It stands 6" talls and inner rim diameter is 2".  The seams have been polished and it also has a wide polished pontil mark.

I thought it was possibly UK but can't really find a British company to place it with.  Anyone else got any clues please?
