Just an ordinary glass vase! Quite thin glass with this narrow neck and flared opening and approx 10" tall. It has a pattern which resembles the bark on a tree for want of a better description! Would just like to put a name or place to it! Many thanks! Here are two photographs of the bottom of this vase. I have had it under a strong light, breathed on it etc but cannot see anything other than what is in the photograph. Many thanks for your help GNO.

Mystery Solved

    Not so ordinary, me thinks!...:-)

    Thank you inky! We will see what might be suggested!! I have just been looking through your past posts -what an eclectic array of possessions! I am a bit similar, loved the bedspread. I also have blue insulators (2) and only 1 kralik vase, like yours but with bumps!! Will put it on sometime.

    Thanks you miKKoChristmas!!

    Yes!.. I am rather all over the place with what I collect, I get quite passionate with everything I find what ever it may be..:-) my budget only allows for the bargains, but! I have to admit even if I had pots of money it would be the same, much more exiting and then your new found treasure starts off with a new bit of history...:-).. I have a feeling that you have a treasure there too!...

    Look forward to seeing some more of your 'stuff' too!...:-)

    Well, if it is a treasure it will be a bonus as it was only 50 pence at a car boot sale. It was very dirty and I just get a kick out of cleaning and renewing a life that an object might once have had. I do like old textiles and I have lots of old linen, I have recently bought (bargain price like you!) three '1913' nurses' aprons, full length, in the most fantastic condition. Why? Will we ever understand why we do it?!

    This looks like a job for TallCakes and his posse of glass gurus.
    GSnowy Owl you are never stumped!
    Personally I have no idea. Guessing Victorian? But that is my fall back answer : ))
  7. Justanovice Justanovice, 5 years ago
    Thanks AmberRose! I too think Victorian but need a more expert opinion. I also thought GSO would fly in and give me the answer as he seems to know such a lot!!
    Will take a photo of the base of it and see if it helps identify it! Many thanks to all.
    Really must go to bed now!

    Amber.. I am stumped all the time. I just don't comment on things that I have zero clue on normally unless it happens to be a glass type that I am actively trying to learn better. :)
  9. Justanovice Justanovice, 5 years ago
    Greatsnowyowl, I have now posted two more photographs of the bottom of this vase, hope it helps! Many thanks for finding the time to help me!
