I have previously posted a pink frit and thorn foot vase which caused some difficulties with attribution - the vase is at http://www.collectorsweekly.com/stories/55453-frit-and-thorn-vase?in=user
The first picture shows that vase with a new arrival.
I have just received the second vase, and I am hoping it will help with the identification. To my eye and hand, the two vases are made of the same frit. They have the same degree of roughness in the hand, the same colour, and gradation from white at the base to deep pink at the top. Both are cased, pink inside, clear outside. Both have applied clear feet, one thorn the other not. Both came from England - UK eBay, but different sellers.
I still have no clear idea whether these are Bohemian, and if so Kralik (as previously suggested by one poster - but Obscurities said it did not strike him as Kralik, which may tell you all you need to know), or English, so I will post in Bohemian glass and British glass in the hope of getting the widest range of opinions. I'd really love to know more about these vases!
