This small vase had a Czech sticker on it when i first spotted it. When i went back to buy it, the sticker was gone. I'm hoping a Czech glass expert could help me identify it...please? The outer glass is rough not smooth like most examples I've found, there is also what looks to be cooper added. The inside and bottom are mostly white, while the bottom pontil Mark has been smoothed out.

    can you take more pics... top of vase show the rim... measurements etc.. never seen anything like this before..not getting a czech feeling from it..that doesnt mean it's not,
  3. sarahoff sarahoff, 2 years ago
    I'm hoping these extra pics help in identifying its region and maker. I've only tried researching Czech glass because of the sticker. Thanks for your feedback:)

    Hi Sara!
    Did the label say Czechoslovakia when you saw it? Any of these:

    Thank you so much vetraio50 and Czechman:) I remember the sticker was oval with Czechoslovakia written on it. The label web page will help!

    I found two similar Venetian glass vases " both unidentified" that mentioned the glass technique being "roll up or laminated" but neither had the elephant like texture this one has.

    can we see a picture of the base that would be pretty necessary. it's unusual.
  17. sarahoff sarahoff, 1 year ago
    I posted some new photos, the texture of the glass is very difficult to photograph and hardly do the piece justice. Thank you guys for giving me your input.

    Do you remember what the sticker looked like at all?
  19. sarahoff sarahoff, 1 year ago
    It was many years ago, but do remember thinking it was an unusual pottery piece at first. It wasn't until I turned it over and saw the base and the Czech sticker that I realized it was glass. I didn't buy it right away and tried to research it once I got home. When I returned to buy it, the sticker was gone. I should have bought when I first spotted it:)

    Thanks Inky, I'm hoping these new photos help to identify its maker.

    Does anyone know if Kralik has ever had oval paper labels?
  23. sarahoff sarahoff, 1 year ago
    Just curious, I wonder if its the base of a table lighter?
  24. sarahoff sarahoff, 1 year ago
    Thank you so much Moonstone:)
  25. sarahoff sarahoff, 1 year ago
    It's the base of a Murano table lighter! Boy was I searching in the wrong direction. Now how do I go about finding the top?
