Overlayed blue and white vase (my favourite purchase to date)

Post by heygarth54 on September 28th 2010, 4:00 pm


A lovely blue and white spiral effect vase, it is 8in tall, no overly heavy. It has no makers mark, can anyone suggest a maker or does anyone recognise the design ?

Another guess but maybe Opaline Florence?

Thanks again Rob, I felt sure someone was going to say Murano! again.

Opalina Fiorentina was based in Empoli, not Murano. But I'm not sure this vase is Italian at all - it looks quite Chinese/Far East to me.

Thanks again Nic, What doesn't show up well on the photo is that on the outer case of the vase you can feel and see the fine layers in the glass, it isn't just flat like the inside.
