Please could you let me have a picture of your vase taken near a window giving natural light not flash. This will be used in our research into the Wuidart colour range.

All best wishes , patrick.

Is the foot clear or same colour as the body........?

Hi,
 Just wanted to say that Emmi also would have come up with the answer................ I just pipped her to the post :)

Stevens and Williams made a very similar case with a clear foot.

Regards, Patrick.

LOL!  I went to bed early as was exhausted after Cambridge.  But yes, Wuidart was on my mind!  Lovely colour Keith I know someone who has the Violet version, also stunning!
