Amber vase - Whitefriars, Murano, other?

Post by NaomiM on September 26th 2012, 12:15 am

Originally bought this simply because I loved the colour. Dealer thought it was Murano, but I'm wondering if it could be a Whitefriars hambone vase, although the base doesn't seem wide enough, and I don't know if they did them in amber.

Polished rim, plus inner and outer edges are bevelled.
Polished base.
Remains of label on base, but could simply be an old price ticket.
13cm tall. 4.5cm rim dia.

My only worry is 9537 is 4.5" high, while 9538 is 6" high.
9538 seems to be closer in shape, especially round the base, but this amber vase is slightly over 5" high. Could it be a cut down 9538?

Or might be 9497 = four and five eighths inches
