Hi Peter,, that's fine with me re: the photo, no problem at all, wonder why though it wasn;t working for some people?  Likely to be something I did or didn't do, but usually they work out OK.  Thanks again for doing it.  Emmi

Thanks for reposting Emmi's photo Peter, I tried it several times and couldn't see it before.

For my money, Emmis photo is conclusive evidence that Nic's vase is WF.  That shade of blue is quite particular, isn't it?  Really unusual hue.  I know what Sue meant about Flygsfors too...the clunky bottom (a bit like my own  :wink: ) had me thinking about Scandi too before.

Yippeee for the GMB pooling of information!  I'm glad Nic's vase didn't turn out to be a 'witch'.  ;)

Another little word about colour...to my mind the Holmegaard blue is more similar to Whitefriars Sapphire Blue.  Arctic Blue is fairly easily recognised on these beaked vases and teardrops, but on more dense items say Ducks or those bubbled pin bowls, it can sometimes be difficult to ID the colour, and certainly from a photo even more difficult. I've got an 8" Arctic Blue pin bowl which because of the thickness of glass, looks identical to an Indigo Hooped vase...but the pin bowls were not made in Indigo, so it can't be!!! Hey Ho!!

Arctic Blue and Sapphire Blue are very similar, but the latter is a little closer to an electric blue - at least on the one Sapphire piece I own (a 9353 Curtain Vase - which is unfortunately a little too thin to photograph for direct colour comparison).

Unfortunately not - I've just been rifling through my HG bits, and found a small piece of pressed glass in an almost identical shade.  :? But as far as I know, HG rarely used their pressed glass colours for blown glass - I've a few pieces of pressed glass in odd colours.

(Edit: I've just found another identical pressed candleholder in a colour very like Sapphire!  :lol: )

:o I think Whitefriars Sky Blue looks a dead ringer for Whitefriars Sapphire Blue in some lights too.

God!  It's enough to drive ya mad isn't it??  :lol:

Nic, have a look at the Circaglass website....it's on the links section of Whitefriars.com.  Go to Whitefriars section two and there's a ruby beaked.  Has a bit of a chubby bottom like yours (the glass I mean) and a rather elongated beaky bit.  Just to highlight the  variations.  I am not commenting on your upload on the .com site, as I've said it all here I think.
