I think you can be sure it's not Whitefriars. Neither is it a fake - many companies have done bark style finishes, including Ingridglas and Davidson (yours is not Davidson).

Whitefriars has much more complex patterning; the tangerine really is the colour of a ripe tangerine and the bases of other W/F bark pieces I have seen are polished (don't know about vases)

WF never did a completely square bark vase - cylindrical and various other shapes with textured finishes but not a totally square bark vase.  The texture on this vase is very different from a WF bark vase anyway - this looks more like ripples.  (Christine, it does remind me of the Davidsons Luna vases although I must admit I've never seen a tangerine one!)

You're forgetting Pattern 9683 and 9808 Nailhead vases by Whitefriars, Pip.

Even Davidson Luna is a more complex pattern than this one.

Naiheads only have pattern on two opposite sides.

I wouldn't call this vase "bark textured" either. The fact it is textured though can catch out those not familiar with Whitefriars and that it is that shape, like the Nailhead vases.

No I wasn't forgetting them but they're a) not bark textured and b) plain on two opposite sides so my point still stands!

I meant that they were a similar shape and thus vases like the ones in the beginning of the thread can catch people out.
