    We just found this in an old box of my mother in laws. Probably been in storage 20 years. It is glazed orange and brown. I have no other information. No marks on bottom, but appears to have an indentation where a pontil mark may have been?

      It looks like glass.

      Agree with charcoal - it's glass. Not possible to positively ID it. Many of these sorts of glass items are Asian imports.

      It's a nice piece of glass Jeneric. Great spatter.
    4. jeneric jeneric, 5 years ago
      It is glass, yes
    5. welzebub, 5 years ago
      Possible to see an image of the bottom?
    6. jeneric jeneric, 5 years ago
      Yes I will post a pic of the bottom
    7. welzebub, 5 years ago
      Is the top rim ground and polished? There does not appear to be a pontil mark on the bottom of the piece. I hate to ask for another pic, but a pic of the rim would be good, taken close if possible and at an angle to show the finish of the rim. A pic of the base at a about a 45 degree angle which shows the bottom better, to make sure there is not a pontil mark that has been ground or polished, would help also. Thanks.

      Sure, I can take some more photos. But it is smooth on the bottom. I will post the rim.
    9. welzebub, 5 years ago
      OK... that will help.... Thanks.
    10. jeneric jeneric, 5 years ago
      Ok I know you cant really tell from the photo but it appears to have had a pontil mark that was smoothed out. I hope the rim picture helps though.
    11. welzebub, 5 years ago
      The indent on the bottom is not a pontil mark, simply an indented base. Not uncommon in early glass. The ground rim indicates that it would have been clown in a mold and then finished by grinding and polishing the rim after it had been annealed in an oven.

      The glass in my opinion is ca 1920-30's and is Czech..... the specific maker may be hard to nail down for sure. There is not a doubt in my mind that it is Czech though....

      A picture of the entire vase would be nice to see.

      Ok Scott there's the pictures of the whole vase. I had replaced them so welzebub could see the rim.

      Your vase resembles some Welz production, buy I can not say for sure that it is theirs.
