Swedish Green and White Glass Vases

Post by Wills-place on February 2nd 2010, 3:08 am

Greetings,

I recently purchased these wonderful green and white glass vases. They stand 13" tall and are 6 3/4" at the widest point.
The exterior glass is green, the interior glass is white and the base is clear. Each vase weighs 3lbs 8oz and the pontil has
been ground concave. Could someone help me identify these?

Thanks,

Bill

They look similar to Holmegaard, but hey !what do I know, I thought Gordon Brown was a hit for the stranglers , but I am sure one of our glassy eyed members will know

Hi Bill, welcome to the forum.

What makes you think they're Swedish? I'm doubtful personally - it's not a very Swedish colour or technique. In answer to Ed, yes Holmegaard (Denmark) produced cased glass similar to this however these definitely aren't HG production - wrong colour, wrong shape....

I'm leaning towards contemporary Polish or Far Eastern production at the moment but it'd be good to see a base shot please if possible...

Thanks for the replies. Sweden was a complete guess. Poland looks like a more possible candidate. Here are some shots of the base.

Thanks,

Bill
