Handkerchief Vase Thread - Not Italian
« Reply #30 on: July 31, 2006, 01:44:25 PM »
Hi Emmi: sorry I forgot to post it :oops:  :?

Just so people are aware, either this Choc & Cream vase, or mine, has stripes the wrong way round. We really need a few more examples to draw a conclusion. Possible that Chance made them this way (1977-81), and Fiesta (1981-199x?) the other way round?

Forgot to mention this is the second size up at 5 inches tall.  I'd really like to find out if there are many of these around...and indeed if the the vertical stripes are less common (or the other way round)!  Emmi

Ah, well I don't think Fiesta made the 5" ones. But they are the least common size so finding another in this colour to compare it with might prove rather tricky! :shock:

Have just discovered I have another (did a bit of box delving) this time with red vertical stripes over white horizontal.  Also 5 inches tall.  Emmi

That's the more conventional way. I think there's only green and the choc/cream ones where the white stripe goes vertical.

I saw Adam's Muurlanlasi Oy of Finland Vase and it remined me of this Blenko piece. This is a Don Shepherd design made in 1979. Thought I'd add it.

A beautiful piece Cathy, helped by an excellent photo.

I love the bark style texture on this Blenko piece - it feels in places as if it's mutating into a crocodile skin pattern!

Thanks

Thanks Adam, Blenko made this piece in crystal and antique green only. I do like the texture on this piece.

And there's a blue/white where the white is vertical too - in fact I've noted two of them on eBay, David. ( BTW does the white/white count as a vertical white or a horizontal white? )
