Another Dutch vase. I've checked with a mate in Holland who tells me that this is not a Mira vase by Rozendaal. I had had another look at it and counted the optic lines and they were not the right number for a Mira vase.
This one really glows! It's in "uranium glass, vaseline glass glows bright green under ultraviolet light, thanks to the uranium oxide added to the glass in its molten state. In natural or indoor light, vaseline glass has a yellow or yellow-green tinge with an oily sheen, which is where its name comes from." http://www.collectorsweekly.com/search.php?q=ultraviolet
This vase is was ground at the rim but not rounded off by heat.
It might be Leerdam or Maastricht. I think it is similar to the Leerdam Tomaat vase by A.D.Copier and this one was sold to me as an unsigned piece of Leerdam. I am looking for help with an attribution.
This vase has 12 vertical optical lines. Mira on the other hand is made using a two-mould process to produce (8) vertical optical lines...".
My version is uranium vert chine. It is 16.5 cm high.
