    Lovely cobalt blue vase, dark rich colour. Signed with what appears to be BR ID or 1d, Y81 which I am guessing it was made in 1981. The BR could be initials...and ID or 1d (Jan 1?) Y81 = 1981? I thought Blenko 5519 at first but Wayne Husted was not with Blenko in 81. Any leads appreciated.

    8 3/4" tall x 5" opening.

      Could it be BRISTOL?

      Great idea@swfinluv1! I did a search and there is a Bristol glass company that started in 1988. There is a lily vase in this shape and colour. The only thing that is throwing me is that the signature looks like it says 81. Perhaps I'll email them and see if they can shed some light.

      Thanks for the tip!

      Do you have a picture of the part that shows the '81'? The only thing I can see in the pictures is the word 'Bristol'.

      Oh! So you think that it says B R I S T O L...I guess it could! LOL! That wasn't what I saw but I think I see what you mean. Too funny! Thanks!

      You've solved the mystery, thanks!!!

      I think I get it now, too. I thought there was a separate picture with the '81' showing and I was just missing it! : )

      Hi Gillian,

      Yes, very true that Brisol Blue glass has a long history. I did email the company that started in 1988 and they confirmed that this is likely their vase made within the last 3-4 years. So not old :(
