Where to buy this conical glass vase?

I broke my roomate's glass vase and it seems to be special. She said it's probably from globus. I tried searching but I can't seem to find this specific shape. Help?



Worst part is, it was a gift she received. ....... what a day.
Here are the pics.

Re: Where to buy this conical glass vase?

Does it have anything written on the base?

I have seen something similar (but thinner) in Ikea.

Re: Where to buy this conical glass vase?

Glasi Hergiswil sell beautiful vases, none exactly in the shape you want but some come close. Maybe your friend will warm up to one of them?

This one is especially gorgeous, have no idea of your price range though...

Wrap it up and take it to the homewares department at globus. I am sure someone will be able to identify it.

It is difficult from your photo to really see the structure, but if it is a double-walled glass with an air layer in between, it could be 'bodum' but normally their glass is very clear and flat, not chunky....

Re: Where to buy this conical glass vase?

Any luck?
I saw a proper conical flask (and a measuring cylinder) in Manor. It was with the vases- so I doubt if it was meant for the chemistry lab.

Re: Where to buy this conical glass vase?

@chinensis8

Here's an idea... Are you sure that your room-mate wants a replacement just like (or very similar to) that exact vase? If so, could she perhaps ask the person who gave it to her, where it was bought, explaining that you will replace it?

If she does not, in fact, need exactly such a thing, but would be glad of any nice vase (or something else for her home) perhaps you could offer to take her to Globus and let her choose one herself, and you pay for it. If she likes the idea, then it might be a feel-good moment for her, reminding her of the gift she'd received, and feeling your goodwill. If you decide on inviting her along to choose, you might like to go to Globus first, on your own, to be sure of the kinds of prices there.
