Cut Glass Lead Crystal Vase. French ? 512
I picked up this vase a while ago in a charity shop, it is 10ins in height and is fairly heavy, I just wondered if anyone might know the maker or country of origin. Most of the foilage decoration is frosted while the remainder is clear.

I say cut glass because of the weight and the fact that there are no seems at all, I looked very closely and felt inside the vase, internally it is absolutely smooth. Do you think it might have moulded decoration ?
No seems on the foot either.

The Fleur de ley look moulded, its difficult to tell from a picture. I reckon this is continental, french or italian maybe, they seem to do that frosted/clear thing a lot. But probably completely wrong Rolling Eyes

100% press-moulded. Reminds me of wares from Walther from the 1970s-present, but I'm sure there are other possibilities. There are a few German, and other continental, firms producing quite traditional pressed glass.
