Hi Andy,

You sure seem to find them!
I'm reading this from somewhere in Europe and haven't got my tape measure with me so I can't put your inches in centimeters.
You've got a Dutch hyacinth vase from 1930-1940 and once I get the exact height I will be able to tell you if it is Leerdam or Maastricht. Judging from the cup and colour I would say Maastricht. Both places made them in uranium plus another 10 colours or so and over here they're not so rare but it's the first one I see pop up in England.
How big is your collection by now? We do have a club over here you could join you know....

Thanks Patricia and Ivo,
Dutch! Super  ;D
its almost exactly 20cm tall, cup 7 1/2 cm wide.

Patricia, i only have a few, and i must admit i will probably pop on ebay when i get round to it,
its just i get too addicted to buying and never time to sell!

Cheers
Andy
