30cm tall aubergine bud vase with "sectioned" bit near the base (4 parts). Will have to put close up of base on another one as I haven't mastered the two pics in one yet!

Owen James Swinnerton28/06/11 I understand that the Whitefriars bud vases similar to this always have a spherical knop - if it isn't, it ain't.
Rosy Rutter14/08/08 This vase is swedish art glass. I have three in graduated sizes, and two have original labels.

Emmi Smith06/08/06 Phew!!! At last David!!!
David Fletcher05/08/06 It is by Alsterfors of Sweden.
Emmi Smith05/08/06 I've had a look and still not sure. I have been caught out before on
these bud vases that is why I am cautious , there is something about
the "knop(the bulge above the base) which still says Swedish to me. And
the colour is a bit iffy for W/f.
Flick Kiash05/08/06 Thanks Emmi, just found an identical one on Ebay that says "Whitefriars" if you want to get a better look at what mine looks like. Item no 280013662051 - (don't know how to put link in I'm afraid).
Emmi Smith05/08/06 Whitefriars did make bud vases similar or like this. So did
Alsterfors of Sweden - almost identical. So with seeing it up close and
personal, sorry I cannot be sure - there's something about it though
which makes me think Alsterfors! Can someone else help?
