Is this a Whitefriars glass vase or beaker
« on: August 14, 2008, 07:35:48 PM »
I bought this vase or beaker today because I thought it may be Whitefriars because of the diamond shaped body, I only have Lesley Jackson's book on Whitefriars, on page 113 plate 78 it shows 7 Woodchester beakers and diamond moulded related vases, some look very similar to the vase I bought today but not identical, the vase stands just over 5" tall and has a slightly rough pontil mark, I would appreciate any help and information on this vase, hope the pictures are ok but found this a difficult item to photograph

Thanks Roy
