    These were recent Art Glass finds, first from the Flea Market, is the Pukeberg Sweden Glass Birgitta Watz Optima Vase. It's a very heavy 5/8" thick Crystal Blown Glass, Pillow Type Vase, that's 11"high x 12"wide x 4"thick with a large chevron textured surface, front and back, and a forward slopping 1 1/2" opening on top. The Vase is etched marked "Optima Pukeberg Watz 92", and with a paper sticker on the front base PUKE BERG GLAS BRUK on 4 lines, SWEDEN up the right side of it. Then on Thursday 04/11/19, I found in the Thrift Shop, this very similar shaped Blown Cased Glass Vase, by Jeff Benroth Glass in Berkeley, California. The Clear Green Glass Vase, has 3 bands of Opaque Glass coming up from the bottom, Turquoise White, and then Turquoise with a Clear Green between, and on top, I'm not sure that this is a true Case, but the other Colors are only on the inside of the Vase, that is 9 1/4"high x 9"wide x 3"thick, it has a round opening on top of 1 1/2"dia, and the Glass is 3/16"thick. The Vase is etched marked on the bottom "Jeff Benroth Glass 2006"
    Jeff Benroth Glass makes Glass Decorator Fireplace Logs, from molds of real Logs, and seems to be doing very good with it!
    The Cast Iron Bunny wishes a Happy Spring, and Easter! :^D

      That company has a very unfortunate name. But very pretty pieces!

      It might mean something else in Sweden, but maybe not! &:^} I think the Pukeberg Vase is almost 8lbs, and the Benroth Vase is maybe 2lbs, and thanks EAPG, I think they're both Pretty too! :^D

      Thanks for the love Anik, very nice of you! :^)
