Possible Lindstrand vase?
« on: July 31, 2009, 10:04:21 AM »
I've had this vase for a little while now, but never found out who made it.
Has a very heavy quality feel(weighs almost 4kg), polished out pontil.
It is un-signed/un-marked., but it reminds me of a few Lindstrand pieces I've seen in the past.

Height is 14cm.

Any help is appreciated :-)

I think these may have been (are being) sold by the British Heart Foundation.....I may be mistaken though.

Hmm, I'm not sure about BHF, the vases they sell tend look a tad on the poor quality side.

Oh well, guess it shall remain on the shelf for however it takes to find out who made it hehe

Thanks anyway :-)
