Lightweight enamelled vases - what are they?
« on: August 18, 2007, 08:00:23 PM »
Hi there, I have been the victim of a mixed lot at auction again ::)  While buying two Mdina vases and a lovely vase from Phoenician glass I got two very light enamelled vases, one blue the other blackish.  Both with fairly crude flowers on them and both with broken pontils.

Before I try and pass them on I would like to know what to describe them as, but I am well out of my depth here (they are certainly not Whitefriars!).  Can someone point me in the right direction please?

20cm high Blue ?transfer decorated?

21cm high black hand-painted


I started with Carnival glass, then other C20 irridescent, then Whitefriars ducks, then Dartington FT Daisies etc, then Whitefriars Tricorns...when will it end?
