Hi
Can anyone tell me anything about this vase, it is quite large standing at 10" tall, I am no expert but I would think it dates to about 1930 or so.
Thankyou in advance for any info you can give.  :?:  :?:

Hi — Sowerby pattern No. 2597, launched c. 1937 give or take a year or two.   Launched in two sizes, 5" and 10".   Later an intermediate size was added 7½"?, 8"?.   I would be grateful for an exact measurement.   Some post-war examples have sandblasted interiors.

I believe that some were sold pre-war by imaginative retailers as garniture sets, with a 10" 2597 flanked by two 5" 2597s, as they crop up like this more often than you would expect.

Colours include flint, amber, greens, blues, Rosalin (Sowerby's highly variable pink), amethyst, black, and, the most desirable, uranium yellow.

Gareth — BGbtW #169 was probably the reference you were looking for.

I do have that book around here somewhere and that must be what I remembered it from... many thanks for the prompt otherwise I could well have ended up on a wide variety of tangents and dead end alleys. :roll:

Nicky — apols, I meant the exact height of the intermediate size, not the height of the 10" size, which we already know.   Every time I see a middle one I don't seem to have a measure handy!
