Lalique’s Formose green glass vase – £5500 at McTear’s.

First designed in 1924, the footed ovoid vase moulded in relief with goldfish was produced in various shades and had lasting popularity.

The 6½in (17cm) tall example offered at Glasgow on January 30 was etched R.Lalique, France, and numbered 934 to the base, which would indicate an inter-war or immediately post-war date.

Against a £1000-2000 estimate it sold to a bidder from the south of England at £5500.
