I can't believe my luck finding this. Once again at one of our Goodwill stores. I recognized the mark as something familiar but couldn't remember the factory.I'm kind of on this 60's tangent at the moment and I really loved the shape and modern vibe. It felt like quality too. Yes,it was Meissen as I found out when I got home and checked the porcelain marks.This mark was used from 1912-1954.It has "Weifs or Weiss" either is correct, incised below the swords.It also has numbers that are very faint " ? 246" and "5 ? 485 can't read a couple. It stands 21 cm or 8.2" tall . According to what I've read "Weifs" was the designer.There are a few auctions of his bottles which they date as 1920's The biggest surprise was to see one on Ebay exactly like mine selling as a "buy it now" for $ 525.00 !! He calls it a "Lofty" vase. He's a art dealer from Bulgaria with perfect feedback so I would believe he's reputable. The catalog of art works in his Ebay store (sunart) is amazing and expensive. I still can't believe it !! I hope it's not a fake. A later reissue of an old design wouldn't be too disappointing, but I think it's original and in perfect condition !

    I'm sure they thought it was a piece of inexpensive milk glass,because it was marked at $1.75 !! Even I wasn't sure of it's value or the factory mark, initially. I just knew it was marked and had a quality about it. I really loved the shape and the way it felt. A total surprise believe me ! -Mike-
