Grey Sandblasted (?) Glass Vase

Post by Dannd on July 31st 2013, 6:17 am

Hello!

Im new to this part of the forum and glassware so excuse my naivety! I bought this vase because I loved the color and shape, just wondering if this is IKEA or something else? Maybe someone can give me more information on the technique used to make this - is it sandblasted to give it that frosted appearance? Does this shape have a name? Would it be blown? Its unmarked so I have a sneaking suspicion it probably had a made in China or IKEA sticker at one point but I thought I would ask, even for the pure technical aspect of it. Any information about this would be great! Thank you for your time!

* It's 11.5" H x 5" W

Don't remember seeing this design before, usually Chinese wares appear in large quantities.

It could be sandblasted or the satinated finish might have been achived with acid, either applied as a paste or fumed. It will have been blown into a mould first.

Elme of Sweden produced vases in this sort of shape but smaller and not satinated (as far as I know). Carlo Moretti on Murano produced a lot of satinated tall vases with pencil necks but usually more colourful, may be worth investigating.

Thank you for your quick reply! You are right, I can definitely see a Elme of Sweden influence and a Carlo Moretti influence in this piece. Unfortunately its not signed (I assume all their pieces are?) but this has given me more to work with in my search!
