Is this a Shear mark on my vase?

Post  ltarczy on Thu Jan 24, 2013 9:16 am

Hi everyone!

I noticed that my vase has, what looks to be, a line or groove that runs horizontally across the bottom of the vase, just above its base. When I run my finger across the groove it feels smooth (not like a scratch). Can anyone confirm for me whether or not this could be a shear mark?? I have a super sized image that shows part of the groove-like line.

Hi there,

Could you post another picture that shows more of the piece and then one that shows the piece completely as very hard to see what you are referring to - thanks! Lorraine pieces often had shear/finishing marks - one of the tells between chalet and Lorraine. EDAG pieces can to - don't see it quite as often though. Chalet used pear wood when finishing their pieces which is the only wood, according to the artists, that does not leave finishing marks.

Hi Deborah,

Here are a few more pics. The last pic is of the base of the vase and you can see from the base that it isn't chalet or lorraine - not sure who the manufacturer is.

Here is an image of the complete vase

In this picture, below, the grooved line appears just above the base of the vase and runs horizontially from left to right.

In this image, below, the vase is laying on its side with the base of the vase being on the left. Running along side of the base's edge, is the grooved line.

Here is image of the base - in a previous post about this vase it was decided that this vase was not made in Canada.
The vase has lots of little bubbles at the top and some larger bubbles near the bottom of the vase, so it's not the best made vase. That's one reason I thought the grooved line might be a manufacturing defect, as opposed to post production damage.

Hi Itarczy,

I agree that is not post production damage and agree most likely a shear mark during manufacture. Not from a crimping tool or would be blunt and depressed not linear like that.

Gorgeous coloured piece and really nicely shaped. Still going with Murano on it.

Hi Deborah,

Thank you very much for helping me with my question. When posting on eBay I was going to advertise it as having a long scratch, even though it didn't really look and feel like a scratch, but now I feel more confident in saying that the mark is likely production related.

Thanks again, Deborah, you are awsesome!!!
