Heavy Two tone Glass vase, possibly whitefriars?

Post by Millay on August 30th 2013, 7:07 pm

Hi All I picked up this stunner of a vase today, its 8.5 inches tall is and weighs just over 3 kilograms! I am drawing a blank on who made it though, its like a large version of a whitefriars design so i am guessing it isnt. any help would be really helpful :)

Assuming it's not modern China/Poland from Ikea, I would have thought it was more likely to be one of the Scandinavian glassmakers such as Hadeland.

Thank you for your reply. Im hoping its not going to end up in my ikea/china collection :) When i brought it it was filthy and had lots of paint splashes on it, with some nice wear to the base, making me think its unlikely to be ikea etc. but im pulling a blank at the moment :)

I always like to see paint splashes. Can mean it's at least a generation (30yrs) old.

Just to update for future reference, with help i managed to track it down, it would appear to be designed by Kate Spade called Garden Street Vase, and manufactured in poland. a modern but really nice piece.
