    The red and blue vase here are the same mould although the red has been clear cased and the blue has not.
    Strangely the red vase has an upper case B in the base mould; why for I do not know.
    The green vase, although a different shape, is also from the same maker. There are similarities in the base and the bobble number and spacing is the same around the lip and base.

    I am sure these are Tajima Glass although I have only ever seen them with a Made in Japan sticker, or a distributor's sticker like Enesco.
    They have the typical Tajima bird bath base and common Tajima colours.

    The cylindrical cased vase is as yet not identified.
    The blue is a Tajima blue but because of the white internal casing it looks quite different.
    The base has a flat, flame finished look to it like some of Tajima's simpler blown vases, but the evidence is not enough for a Tajima attribution.

    So, boring stuff over, I will say "I LOVE DALEK VASES!"

      I love reading your threads, Karen, such a wealth of knowledge and obvious study, so beautifully written. And the photos are to die for! :)

      Thanks Cpo - glad they appeal.

      Scott thanks for the ongoing support!

      I'm really not big on lots of evidence based work Katherine, I generally just like looking at stuff, but somehow I have worked some things out and try to pass it on.
      You've made me feel all warm and special now. Thanks so much!
