I cannot resist coloured glass. I spotted this on the top shelf in a charity shop, and it looked so dark that I wasn't sure it was glass, until I took it down and saw the light shining through it. At first glance, I thought it was from Australia, as I could clearly see the word on the inside of the vase, but taking it home and giving it a good wash has cleaned it up, and I can see other writing too. What it seemed to say is G. Brit RE 33445 AUSTRALIA then a date, which may be 1929, but really not sure. I have managed to take a picture of the impressed mark, so if anyone can recognise it and what it means I would be very grateful. The vase is 18.5 cms tall and 15 cms across at the top and has a wavy design round it. I think it is moulded glass.
I have tried to take better picture of the base rim, but the light is quite poor here now!
