A hand blown vase with swirling a red stripe

Post by Celestial on Tue Feb 07, 2017 2:39 am





Hi. Forgive me if I get this all wrong....it's my first time on here! I've got a few items I would like some help with.

I have this 11" tall bottle vase and wondered if anyone could identify it's age and the manufacturer. I love it, the base has a broken pontil mark which is concave.

Viv.

Nailsea may be a bit optimistic!
Possibly Murano.

Thanks, I'll consider both of them. Any idea of age?

Definitely not Nailsea and Murano pretty unlikely with that pontil mark.

Thanks Christine. Any clues to what it is?

I saw a similar (squat) vase today. Same colour, same stripes, same base.
It had a tiny red and gold foil sticker "Made in Italy", so it seems my suspicion
it is Murano was correct.

If it only says made in Italy, the chances are it was not made in Murano. Glass made in Murano invariably has Murano on it although not labels that have the word Murano on them mean that the glass was made in Murano
