I've been trying to find a similar vase on glassware sites but other than Loetz Vesuvian and Sommerso (Murano), I haven't been able to come close to it. It does not have a Pontil..smooth polished base, measures 8" tall by 8" across and weighs almost 12 pounds. Hope my photos will help in it's identification. Thanks everyone. LOU

    The trailings on this vase remind me of Lampreys on sharks. I don't have a Blenko Catalogue or book but did they make similar items? The rim is similar to ones on Blenko vases listed online right now. LOU

    Love it, beautiful colours and all those tadpoles swimming around it....:-)
  5. LOUMANAL LOUMANAL, 5 years ago
    Thanks Justanovice and inky! I'm leaning towards Skrdlovice; Jan Beranek but none of the items by Jan have these "Tadpole" trailings. However, the color combinations are similar in their ashtrays and vases. Someone will recognize it I'm sure. RER (LOUMANAL)

    Thanks Moonstonelover21.....I really love the Jewelry you have uploaded and my wife and I especially love the moonstone items which we had overlooked before. I checked some local shops and there isn't too much to be found especially the quality stuff you collect. Thanks nldionne for the Love! RER (LOUMANAL)

    Hey Lou,
    I don't know if this will help. but try looking up William Glasner Glass. He has many items very similar to yours.

  15. LOUMANAL LOUMANAL, 3 years ago
    Thanks MA! William Glasner is cetainly a possibilty. I noticed that his "trailings" on his vases are mainly of frosted glass. Thanks for your input. RER(BOB)
