I wonder if the green reacts to the u.v. torch??

As John has already said, the style/form of the decoration appears very 'Egyptianesque' - something found on pieces which date to later than Dresser's period and found not uncommonly on art Deco material in the 1920s when interest in ancient Egypt was on a roll.          This would also tie in with the shape to some extent.                           Dresser had long departed this world by then, and if you look at some of his decoration on materials they show quite complex and formal art nouveau patterns - but guess there is always the exception to the rule.
Dresser's foray in the world of glass can be seen in the form of Clutha and related crude colours and forms, rather than this 'toyland' type of pretty painting.                   
My opinion is that the decoration is rather na´ve, so possibly a cottage industry decorator - and perhaps French or Bohemian.

Sorry this is completely unhelpful ;)

Likewise, I can not help with the maker, for what it is worth the decoration looks to be inspired by Egypt - papyrus and the like.

I love this vase and looked at it when it was for sale (same piece I think?) a good few years ago.
I think I saw references to Christopher Dresser, but I never managed to find a maker for it.  I still keep an eye out in case I come across a similar piece, but have never seen anything remotely similar.
Nice piece. Sorry can't be of more help. Interested to see if anyone else comes up with a maker.
I did wonder if it might be Hungarian or from somewhere a little more obscure than the usual Bohemian/French/English.

I wonder whether anyone may be able to identify a glass vase for me please. It stands around 12 inches high, has a ground pontile mark on the base but no makers marks anywhere. It has the appearance of porcelain but is definitely made of glass. I have attached a picture. Be grateful for any help please.

Sorry, should have said just 50's. Hit post instead of preview  ::) I had just been looking at an advertisement from 1954, for this set.

Unfortunately, I wouldn't have a clue to value and it is not something that discussed on this board. Best way to find out value is to search for sold sets, or items, using the WWW.

But my parents got it as a wedding gift July 1954. Any idea on what it's worth?

[Mod: I think you meant 1953]

Hi & welcome,

I would say it is a 1954 Steel Blue "Tinka" set.
