Thanks, both  ;D
Yes, there are faint grinding marks.
I thought it could be MDG.
It does have a label, but not one that is here on the board (well, I couldn't find one  8) ), so will add the photo now.
I know someone wanted photos of any labels, so they are more than welcome to this one (unless it now turns out to be something else and is of no use  :P )

I agree, look for a very faint batutto sort of effect on the polished base. It won't be quite flat and shiny, and that indicates MDG, Della.
A lovely piece. 8) Unusually tall for a square sectioned bottle.

Hi maaswijk, welcome to the GMB.

The technique of making is cameo work, which can be two or more layers of different coloured glass cut through by acid etching and, for better quality items, finished by hand carving.

It is hard to see the detail of the possible signature in your photo. But if this was a genuine Galle item I would expect the signature to be obvious and not seemingly attached to part of the decoration. Also, the "signature part" does not seem as clear as even the Romanian or Chinese copies.

Could you get a closer shot of the "signature part"? And a pic of the whole item would be good to see - for reference.

I would say it was probably MDG. Can you see grinding marks on the base?

Glass / Is this a Leerdam vase?
« Last post by abamji on Yesterday at 04:14:02 PM »
Recently purchased a pair of cut crystal vases at auction, listed as possibly by Leerdam.  The etched mark on the base is shown in the attached photograph but I cannot find it in the Leerdam list.  Can anyone help with ID?

Hi Bruce,

The manufacture looks outstanding with great attention to details. Do you know if they have other pieces available? what's the furnace's name if you could reveal it.

Cheers.

Vase (see pictures) with what I think is a signature, for me not readible and I do not recognise it. The yellow surface is uneven and lies deeper than the blue decoration. The vase is matte, but some parts of the leaves are clear blue, like a clear ice layer.

Who can tell me more about this vase, in particular the maker and technique used. Many thanks in advance for all input, much appriciated.

Hi all,
This lovely fella is 2.5" (63mm) square & 5.5" (140mm) in height and it is actually quite heavy.
Polished flat base & unsigned & there are paddle (?) ripples on all four sides from flattening.
I have looked through the MDG posts and wondered if this was one of theirs, or not?
TIA
Della
