    I am new to this antique forum and so excited that I found it. I bought this vase today for 5 dollars at a thrift store. I have always loved crystal and identified it right away as such but it has no markings. I am also a little unsure on how to tell if it is of high quality. I just wanted to know if anyone maybe recognizes the pattern or maybe the approximate age of it. For the price I bought it for and how lovely it is, I am happy even if it is just a recent, cheap bohemian crystal vase. I have searched online for a few hours and found nothing. The flower design is on the front and back and the criss cross pattern is either side. I have pictures that I will add to this. Thanks in advance for any insight in advance.

    I know the feeling. To me, it doesn't have to be from a famous and revered source. Finding something that delights me and the research to discover things about it is what I most enjoy.

    The flower design looks like it might be a pineapple... Waterford has a pineapple pattern that your lovely vase might be referencing.

    Yes that is how I feel about it. And the researching really is fun and you learn so much along the way.

    Oh it does. I hadn't noticed that. I did think the diagonal cuts in the flowers were unusual and that may be why.

    mitten, I've just gone back and looked more carefully at the centred motif and I was wrong and you were right--my apologies. It IS a flower--I missed seeing the stem earlier. So now I'm thinking it's a peony... (and I won't blame you for thinking I'm just randomly working my way through things that start with "p"!).

    I thought it might have been inspired by a pineapple as I thought it was a rose but after seeing a peony on google (my flower knowledge is lacking) it does look a lot more like one of those. I appreciate any insight into this vase as I honestly haven't been able to find a thing about it online.

    Nice vase. May be Czech.
