Title: Need Help ID Renate Stock Vase
Post by: Solil on December 11, 2009, 05:57:55 PM
:thup:  Hello all, would so appreciate any and all help with this vase. Have found all the info I can on this piece but a date and design. In the years that I have been collecting all types of art glass have come to realize glass collectors are a special kind of people and are so willing to share their knowledge with others who share their passion of glass. Many thanks, hello to Dirk from Germany and Dave from Canada. Ps this piece still retains original labels.

so as you found everything about Renate - will you share that with us? The piece is obviously from Sea Glasbruk where she worked since 1984. There is a strong resemblance with Rune Strand pieces from the eighties. But I think only Sea can give you the level of detail you seek....

Thank you so much for your reply, The only reason I know what I do is because of the original labels, both intact, I am sorry if I came across as a "know it all", that was not my intention, and if I am misreading your reply I apologize.

Hi and welcome to the board!

Don't worry--of course you didn't come across as a "know it all". Ivo was just asking for your source of information, since it is of interest to everyone.

It might be worth contacting Sea Glasbruk themselves for more information on your vase.

Oh thank you so much, I have been a collector of art glass for only a few years but it has become my passion/obsession and I spend a lot of time reading reference books and I think I have been the only person to have kicked out of the Blenko museme for online loitering, G2M. I have tons of links to some really great places. I came across a great Italian piece and I spent days and after looking at about 2000 or so images and reading descriptions finally nailed it. Of course I have heard of the greats such as Tapio, I have been fortunate enough to have had some of his early work in my possession, from the Niva and ultiima thule and also the Gaissa collection. Also had a signed "tulipa" from Ulrica? darn last name on the tip of my tongue. And when I get a piece I dont know much/anything about I get really OCD about it. Thank you once again for your kindness so, so appreciated.   :girlcheer:

Nice to see labels on the Renate Stock piece. I believe she is Austrian but has worked at Sea for a very long time. Not sure if this piece would rate as art glass or as production glass - in any case, nice piece, congrats.

Hello Dirk, do remeber me?, I have a different user name as I changed my e-mail address. I am the one that told you that a "Dirk" is a traditional Scottish Dagger (I am originally from Scotland).

Good morning, Solil. It is a little difficult to see from your photo which series this belongs to but I believe it to be "Breeze". The label is standard for Sea production goods. Can you give the dimensions of the vase, please?

Good Morning, thank you so much for taking the time to help me ID this vase.
The vase height is 5 inches (12mm), widest part across measures 4 1/4 inches (11mm). The vase is deeply textured.  Once again thank you your help it is truly appreciated. Breeze is a pretty name for a lovely design.  :)

You're very welcome.
Well, that knocked my theory for six! ;)  It's definitely not Breeze as the smallest in the series is/was 16 x 11 cms. Would you have the possibility of posting another picture where the shape of the opening is more clear? I ask because Sea made a number of vases where the openings were very similar. I have some old catalogues somewhere and will have a root around in them.

Arrgh!!! :hb2:
I know this one.. I used to sell it in the mid nineties. The name is on the tip of my tongue but it isn't getting any further, I'm really sorry. I can't help you on it. But the tinypic photos you have added should jog something with some of the other board members.
Or contact Sea direct, sending them these last photos..

The best of luck!
