WF Soda or not? ID help appreciated
« on: March 26, 2007, 09:00:57 PM »
This is proving difficult to pin down, initially I'd thought it might be a 1964 Whitefriars Soda Vase in Shadow Green, pattern 9548, but it's got a rather long neck and the shape's all wrong - I haven't found a comparable shape yet.  Piccies below (apologies for the pinky red tinge - I think that was being reflected off my daughters craft table which was to the side!)

Okay, the size is way out for 9548 but I can't see any others with that sort of shape.  I know how difficult it is from photos but the colour doesn't look murky enough for Shadow Green.  Also a nagging questionmark in my mind is the thickness of the glass, the WF soda I have/had was thinner than that.

Sorry not conclusive I know, I'll keep my eye out in the catalogues as I browse.

Yes that's sort of what I think Tim - it's just not quite right although similar - the thickness is OK compared to the WF amethyst barrel soda vase I have however.   Anyway, thanks for looking - much appreciated :-)
