I like Dutch glass.
I bought this at a collector's fair in Sydney a month ago.
I believe it is: vaas KO306, amber, 'optiek', brede bolle voet met 4 ringen, naar boven toe wijder. Its designer was K.P.C. de Bazel for Leerdam.
I found out that the KO306 vases “could be easily adapted for 'geringd' (external horizontal ribs), 'geslepen' (cut in a range of patterns) and sometimes inverted ('omgekeerd') or made with optical vertical ribs ('optiek'). KO306 is a design from 1919. It is 15 cm tall.
The vase is marked with the second “revised mark” from post 1921.
It also has etched above and below de Bazel’s mark:
• REGd No
• 587501 (the numbers are not all clear)
This may indicate that it was a special order perhaps for the unusual vertical optic ribs.
