Glass / ID needed for this Kosta Boda Vase
« Last post by kay813 on Yesterday at 11:25:28 AM »
Hello, I have Kosta Boda Vase with designer's signature on the bottom, but can't figure out the name of designer and its product number. How could I post a pictures to "ID needed" forum?

I guess you're right about it being French but I'm not sure if it's Baccarat. Even though it's mentioned that Baccarat started signing its pieces as from +/- 1935, there are early pieces that are press marked, so this theory is not completely clear to me. I had two 'Locuste' vases from the period 1870-1893 and they were signed with a press mark.
The Bambou décor was used by several companies and not exclusively by Baccarat. I'll have to dig a bit but maybe somebody else knows more in the meantime.

Nice item though.

I'm sure you are both correct.  I was so hoping it was a bulb vase, but I will have a go and see what happens.  It didn't cost much, so nothing ventured, nothing gained ;D
Sorry, I forgot to put size ::)  Its just under 6" high.
Many thanks :-*

I'd agree with Christine, Anne  -  the top simply does not look like that of a bulb vase, where usually there would be a wider part where the bulb would sit.
Is it one inch tall, or 9 inches tall, or  ...................  ;D ;)

I would doubt very much that you will ever find a maker, and not so sure it might be for spills either, sorry

I'm pretty confident it's a vase rather than a bulb vase
Glass / Unknown bulb or spills vase with swags.
« Last post by Anne E.B. on June 26, 2017, 12:40:53 PM »
I bought this to go with my collection of bulb vases which I'll be using later in the year.  I don't know if it was intended to be a bulb vase, but that's what I had fixed in my mind when I spotted it.  It passes the 3 finger rule, but it could be a spills vase ???.  Its not shown in Patricia's book, nor any bulb vase websites.  It appears to have three visible seams.
Any ideas as to maker please before it goes in the garage for later use?
TIA :)
Scandinavian Glass / Heavy cut glass Orrefors signed bowl
« Last post by kenzierose789 on June 26, 2017, 11:11:23 AM »
Hello, could someone please help me find the designer and, if possible, the name of my very heavy (approx 2 kg) bowl.  It is signed Orrefors in cursive script followed by a squiggle which could be an O or D not properly closed at the base, and then 4197 101.  Any guidance would be very much appreciated.
