I don't know where this comes from, but one recently sold on ebay for a fair amount of money: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=310183869634&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

it's 8.5" inches tall. Anyone have any ideas?

Tough call - the shape is very German, the caramel colour very Italian (Empoli), and the watery white interior very Chinese.

It would be impossible to tell for certain unless one crops up with an original label.

Gotta love the auction you link to - essentially: I don't know what it is, but it's RARE! Surely you have to know what something is to judge its rarity? Scandinavian? Cased And "Hooped" Brown Vase Icon_rolleyes

Well we know it's definitely not Holmegaard - my gut feeling is Empoli (Italy).

I would like to thank you so much for your reply. This forum is truly helpful. Empoli? Really? Do you think you might post a link to a site or post an example of this shape that would lead you to believe this? Would really appreciate it. Thanks so much!

I don't think a gut feeling is as strong as being able to point to an example Scandinavian? Cased And "Hooped" Brown Vase 314189

Have you seen our thread here: http://fatlava.forummotion.com/italian-glass-f43/empoli-italy-t3844.htm

Thank you, Skay. Yes, I have looked at that section of the forum. I love looking at glass and spend quite a bit of time combing over sites and books, so that it will help me to be more aware of items to pick up while I'm out shopping at resale shops and estate sales. The shape of this one doesn't seem like empoli. I'm going to research more german glass companies, per Nic's suggestion. Maybe someone could suggest a few german glass companies, so that I have starting point.

Hirschberg would be the likeliest German manufacturer.

But don't forget China - they made a LOT of cased glass from the 1970s onwards. Dalian would be the most likely Chinese manufacturer.

Thanks Nic. This site's administrators should really consider adding a section dedicated exclusively to glass from China. It seems that a forum for that would be the most beneficial for everyone.

We only cover 20th Century design and I think *most* of the Far Eastern glass we see these days is brand new fresh out of the container. Obviously they were producing glass in the 20th Century but it doesn't on the whole tend to be the mass-produced modern stuff we're seeing regularly coming up for ID here. Personally I buy very little far eastern glass (unless I've made a mistake which happens of course!) and I've no desire to collect it - I wouldn't want to waste a great deal of time or effort on a specific Far Eastern section. We already have a wide enough remit without covering things we're not massively into.

Design snobbery aside, which I think MOST of us unashamedly suffer from here, the main obstacle of having a dedicated Chinese glass section is that recorded information on it is so very thin on the ground, so it's hard to assign glass to specific Chinese factories - which would be much the point of having a dedicated Chinese section.

Of course, if anyone did have some Chinese glass that fitted within the site's 20th Century remit and that they knew some firm details of, it could always be posted under 'International Glass'.
