Stevens & Williams ‘candy stripe’ or ‘swirl’ vases & bowls – here is picture of a pink and green vase and a posy bowl in blue and green with a strong attribution to S&W

This is the vase I was wondering about as it is so often attributed to S&W, I don’t think it is the quality is good and the stripes are very like S&W, but what about the shape and did S&W ever do a gold and green candy stripe?

Hi,

The posy bowl and the barrel shaped vase both appear to be from the 'Rainbow Ware' range produced by Stevens and Williams in the 30's and 50's.

I have handled an identical spherical, deeply ribbed, vase in green and gold (amber) and came to the conclusion that this is from a different factory. From memory I believe the finish on the base is wrong. The deep ribs are uncharacteristic of S & W and the colours do match their palete. There are too many question marks concerning this vase therefore I do NOT believe that it is by S & W/ RB.
