    I picked this up a few weeks ago. I was amazed at how heavy it was for it's 8" size. The sides are very thick with a deeply carved abstract design. The satin parts have a vertical almost wood grain texture. The opening in the top is quite tiny too. You might get one or two thin stems in it. The bottom is polished with a concave pontil. No signature or labels. -Mike-

      Why didn't they sign it!! Looks good!

      I don't know and it seems like a quality piece too. It may have had a label at one time.
    5. inky inky, 6 years ago
      I wonder if it may have been one of those mid century lamp bases..I have one similar.....just a thought!...:-)
    6. mikelv85 mikelv85, 6 years ago
      I suppose anything is possible inky, but it's really small and doesn't have any holes for the electric cord unless it was free standing on another base.
    7. inky inky, 6 years ago
      Mine doesn't either it hangs out of the top with fitting...it's packed at the moment so can't have a look at it .... But will google and see if I can find something to show you that is what I mean...:-)

      It's certainly an interesting and intriguing piece, Mike!
    11. mikelv85 mikelv85, 6 years ago
      Thanks Katherine :)..... Inky, I've seen that style of lamp with the cord trailing from the socket. Always thought it looked a bit messy but it's the best way to preserve a valuable vase without drilling it out and ruining it.
    12. inky inky, 6 years ago
      Yes! I agree with you, it does look messy...I don't use mine as a lamp it just sits there...but I am certain it started its life a lamp base, I presume because it was Hand blown you couldn't drill a hole in it for the cord....is yours?... Sorry!.,.I can't see the base clearly!..:-)
    13. mikelv85 mikelv85, 6 years ago
      Nope no holes in mine Ink thank God. It's over an inch thick at the bottom. You'd be drilling forever..lol.
