    Hi there I have a few vases that I had recently aquired in an auction along with clocks. Does anyone recognize this type of vase. Its about 18in tall and has a great color spectrum of blues. I was hoping someone may know the name of it or who its made by or how old it is. Thanks

      This looks to be the "four pillars" vase. Usually there is a little damage to the four toes on this pattern. It does not however appear to be carnival glass as I don't see any iridization. However many of the molds used at the turn of that century were used in making depression glass or EAPG as well. As mentioned in other forums here, many molds were also sold and our still being used even up to this day.

      Definitely not "Four Pillars" This is most likely Mexican glass of quite recent vintage. I've seen vases like this at places like Pier 1 Imports.

      Here's a link to a very similar vase, notice it has a label that reads "Made in Mexico":

      Thanks for sharing ur thoughts I'm still hoping someone might be sure 100% down the road. I looked at Pauls link and don't see much similarity at all other than maybe color. Most likely will have to have it checked out.

      It's the thickness and quality of the glass, as well as the chunky scallops at the top that I was pointing out similarity to. Should have been more specific in that. These vases are swung and have tooled edges, so heights and diameters will vary, as will the edge treatments.
