    Here is a great 7" vase with a mirror-like finish and multicolored marbled confetti. The pattern appears to be pulled up through a mold then raked with a tool to create a marbled of "zipper" effect. The vase is then spun in a mold to create a very geometric shape and then a flash coloring is applied (probably when the glass is cooled). The vase is finished by grinding the rim smooth (it looks different than the other leading suspects).

    This vase is an Anomaly... it is heavy for its size and has a high pitch "ping" when tapped. I'm categorizing this piece as A-A (Anomaly A) and try to match it by variations of shape and decor to a known company. Remember there are more "unknown companies" than "known" ones.

      Very same decor, both shapes appear unique, thank you Craig

      P.s is the finish flashed mirror-like or satin flashed ?
    4. welzebub, 4 years ago
