Mystery glass pitcher/jug/vase- ID assistance appreciated

Post by trellis on April 11th 2013, 1:44 pm

I wondered if someone might be able to help me identify a glass jug I purchased recently. It's 15.5cms high and has a body formed from a clear interior with a milk white opaque casing. The casing has a faint iridescence- almost impossible to photograph and a rough textured almost sand-blast surface effect and clear green handle to one side. It seems to be more of a flower vase than a jug or pitcher lacking, as it does, a lip. I had thought it might be Czech/Bohemian late 19th century but have been unable to find anything similar. Your advice and thoughts would be gratefully appreciated. (I tried elsewhere and have had zero response so far- which either means it's really obvious what the item is or that it's a fake!)

I think it's one I can never remember the name of, but is based in Malta (I think)

Definitely not Maltese. It could be from Gordiola or Lafiore, both glassworks on Mallorca.

Ahh- just has a look and it's Lafiore- thank you JoFish. Slightly disappointing as I thought it might be older but probably worth the 50 pence I invested in it *prepares ebay listing*
