I recently bought this vase at a thrift store. I'm having a very hard time finding another that even slightly resembles it. I'm hoping someone can help me. Its 3 1/2" tall and 5" wide, has a unpolished pontil and a diamond opalescent pattern with berry prunts. With all the dirt I had to clean off, it must be old. Any information would be greatly appreciated

    Nice raspberry prunts! Does it glow under blue light? Could be Czech too!

    It doesn't glow under a black light at all, sorry to say.

    That is an interesting and thought provoking glass vase!

    MY IPINION:
    To me it looks more like middle of the 20th century than Victorian.

    The prunts are more flowing than I would expect from a Victorian piece and the leaf additions are not what I would expect either.

    If it were UK, I'd expect a finished pontil. Also, if it were late 19th or early 20th century, I'd expect it to glow under a black light.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Scott
