Glass / maker of the vase

Model Siska or Hafnia. I've got it for 1956 but I need to check to be sure...couldn't find it in the 30's.
I believe that the small paper labels were still used in the 50ies, but nothing's official.

Sounds perhaps strange but some people can be very creative to make whatever they sell look older.
I presume this is a wineglass by the way. As far as i can see it has a 1930's label

Thanks a lot Anne!

This is a vase Aventin, registered pattern CG962 from 1958.

Your question about  books is answered in your other thread.

Hello Marc,

Your vase is the model Fontenay, indeed a design from Graffart, registered as CG479 and it's illustrated in the 1947 catalogue. I'm not sure how long it was in production for but they made a lot of them, and it doesn't appear in the 50's anymore, in my opinion the blue ones, especially petrol-bleu, and Chinese green are the nicest.

The most complete book for Graffart designs is the reedition of the catalogues 1951-1975, its cover is orange and you can buy a new one for 40 on Ebay.

Hope this helps....
