Scandinavian Glass / Re: Help?

Wow thanks glassobsessed :) won't bother finding some scales then!

I can get a picture at a different angle when I go home tonight from work. It does look identical, but being totally ignorant I wanted expert opinions before I sold it.

Looks fine to me but photographed from that angle angle it is hard to be sure. If the proportions match as well as the dimensions then all is ok.
Any two matching vases will not have weights that are exactly the same, there is sometimes quite a big difference.

Hi John,

Thanks for your reply-how stupid of me not to include a picture!

Hopefully attached now-it is the only one I have of the vase currently. Looking on that list (which was great :) ) it has the same dimensions  (height and diameter-I haven't any scales to weigh it) as the 5th one down the list-ref number 57 00 44.

Welcome to the forum Kirsty

Reply to this topic and post a photograph of the vase, then we can give you our opinion.

Meanwhile, here is a (long) list of Gulvase colours and sizes: http://www.hardernet.dk/Artglass/Gulvvaser-Otto_Brauer_KG_FG_1959-1980.htm

Scandinavian Glass / Help - is this a Holmegaard Per Lutken Gulvvase ?
« Last post by KJM on July 22, 2014, 08:24:16 AM »
Hi everyone,

I do not have a clue about glassware or antiques or anything of that nature, so please forgive me if I am asking a stupid question!

I bought a flat last year and among the furniture/belongings left was an amber glass vase. I am in the process of selling the things (as I have new furniture arriving) and while the furniture was easy to value as it was all IKEA's finest, the vase proved more difficult. After a few google searches for similar items, I came across the Holmegaard Per Lutken Gulvase, and mine is the spitting image. It has the same dimensions, but no sticker to confirm identity.

Would anyone be kind enough to tell me how I would go about establishing whether this is the real deal or just a cheap copy? I do not want to sell it for 10 only to find it was worth far more!

Many Thanks  :)

Another example of Webb Alexandrite, this time a 6 inch plate. Managed to capture the fabled 'chocolate' colour in the third photo.

Glass / Re: Victorian Uranium & Cranberry Glass Globlet Shaped Vase

I hadn't noticed the snapped off pontil mark. Never found it on Webb but it's common on Walsh feet. The crimp and the pontil mark remind me of my uranium Mills and Walker basket http://lustrousstone.co.uk/cpg/displayimage.php?pid=928

I have Vallien Artist collection piece signed in a similar manner to yours and some with all caps so nothing to cause concern.

That's really beautiful :)
For some strange reason, whenever I see that rim it always makes me think Webb.  I can't say definitely why but something to do with the way it is crimped and the shape of each of the curves on the crimp.  But if it were mine that would be my starting point for looking. 
Not sure the pontil mark fits entirely with Webb but I'm sure there has been discussion previously re some pieces with snapped off pontil marks.
