no,they are all reproductions i was selling quite a few of them for a while but now given up because the market is saturated.these are just a few of my own collection.
i like them a lot but couldn't afford the real thing.
i have been collecting glass for a while now and have a brother in finland and i can get hold of riihimaki vases and iittala at quite reasonable prices.
but i find great enjoyment going to car boots and picking stuff up for a couple of quid and selling them on.
on the listing title on ebay i wrote retro 60's style,i never said it was old.

Yes, indeedy. 

If only he'd stick to creating his own patterns and reputation, instead of piggybacking fashion and knocking out mass reproductions that cheapen and devalue the originals.  Sigh.

I know that he doesn't reproduce in the standard WF colours (as far as I know), but the ubiquity of the bricklayer design in varying colours and various grades of quality means that I no longer fancy owning one of any description.

Should a couple of previously unknown sky blue coffins suddenly show up on the market, that could make for interesting times.

Sky Blue coffin vases are on pg.36 of the 1980 catalogue.  ;D

But, yes, I've seen some of the other work of the Horncastle chap, and it's such a shame that he's decided to take this route - but I suppose if you're an independent glassblower in a market constantly calling for the cheapest glass rather than the most well-made or original glass then it can be hard to ignore the call of this avenue where you're guaranteed very regular sales.

And it should be noted that whilst morally and/or artistically dubious, it's not illegal as he's producing copyright-lapsed designs in non-WF colours and is not trying to pass them off as originals. What others subsequently do with his output is where the legal grey area lies.

And also, it should be emphatically noted, Whitefriars themselves produced a lot of copied glass in the 'Glasses With Histories' series.
