Thanks, Glen!   :D  Good to have the 'Lily/Iris' thing cleared up  :lol:

Actually, I'd still rather like a fish centre-piece in my bowl.  I know the 'purists' would probably shudder with horror  :wink:

Bet I won't ever find one in the right colour though  :roll:  Who was it who made the fish centre-piece?  I know Walther did one.  And of course there's always the Walther mermaid & fish.  I suppose she would do.  But was it the right shade of ice blue?   :?

Perhaps it had better stay empty  :shock:

Glad I was correct  :shock:

I was looking at the original catalogues at the time.

BTW, I have the Frog & Bullrushes vase in "vaseline" - it's a real beauty.

Glen, can I ask a quickie please from your catalogue.... I have the larger version of the lily vase - mine is clear glass and it stands 6" high to the top of the points (it's the upright points not the droopy ones). The question is, did these come with a flower holder and plinth as well? http://yobunny.org.uk/gallery1/displayimage.php?pos=-145

Incidentally, I have two smaller versions of lily... one in ice blue and the other in pink (the pink one is flared out at the top, the ice blue one is narrower) - I've seen some of the smaller ones listed as toothpick holders rather than vases though. http://yobunny.org.uk/gallery1/displayimage.php?pos=-144 and http://yobunny.org.uk/gallery1/displayimage.php?pos=-143

Anne, it gets tricky here. The Lily (points cupped out and up) was made in a 7" size and a 9" size, as well as what was described as a "posy set - 5". Each had a holder and plinth. There was also a points up Celery vase (6" and 8") in the same pattern, also with holder and plinth. I also have a tiny little miniature example.

We hope to release the second Sowerby CD-ROM very soon. All these catalogue pages, illustrations and masses more will be on it.

Ahhh I see, thanks for the explanation Glen. Mine being the 6" would be a Celery vase then I suppose. I've not measured the smaller ones yet - they're about 3" tall from memory. I really like them - I found the big one in a charity shop window - really dirty, for £1, so pounced on it. It's washed up beautifully. :D

I really must buy your Sowerby CD's - I've been meaning to do so for a while - but I keep buying more glass!!!  :roll:  I'd learn about what I have already though, and know what else to look for when I'm out hunting.  :wink:

I think we are talking about Sowerbys' pattern 2505.  This came in several sizes and shapes of vase as well as, if my memory is OK, a salad bowl.  All colours, of course.  Star-shaped holders for the vases and black plinths could all be supplied and were usually, but not necessarily, ordered complete.

Three (?) sizes of vase in three shapes and at least four colours - there we have 36 variants plus the holders and plinths.  You can understand why our warehouse manager always looked a bit stressed!
