Contemporary Studio bowl/vase ID? ID = Shakspeare "Syrian"
« on: October 18, 2007, 10:58:19 AM »
Hello all,

lovely piece this I think but I really want to tie it down to a maker, it's not signed but is fairly distinclive so hopefully someone [aa] will recognise the style....

16cm (6 1/4in) high swagged yellow and red trailling over a mottled sky blue, on a solid clear foot, matt acid treated exterior and rough ground pontil scar/foot.

Purchased in London and possibly up for sale in the next few months if I can get an ID...

Many thanks,

M.

When you first posted this I wondered whether it could be Will Shakspeare but I'm still not certain. There are similarities but also differences. I think you should email him. I do know he did some stuff for Liberty some time ago and it could be one of those.

Thanks again Adam,

I've had a few of Will's pieces before, including the bowl below that certainly has some similarities...I'll drop him a line as you suggest and see what he thinks.
