Whitefriars question re 9539
« on: January 07, 2010, 08:17:16 PM »
I have what I am pretty certain is a Whitefriars 9539 vase but colour wise it looks brown until you put it under a strong light and then I can see a sort of hint of green in it perhaps making it khaki  (I thought it might be cinnamon but OH says he sees it as green when under light) but I really wouldn't call it true green.  Having looked through the catalogues, I can't see that it came in a khaki/green shade colour at all :-\  . Mind you I know nothing about W/F at all and have only a few pieces.  Would anyone know if it did?  In all other respects size shape and polished base wise it seems to be right.  oh it has a ground and polished rim (I think that is the right description :spls:quite thick rim 4mm and flat).
Any help very much appreciated.  Thank you.

I think we need a picture taken in daylight. But here is a colour guide http://www.whitefriars.com/colours.php

If it is Pat 9539, this was made in Arctic Blue, Ocean Green and Twilight.  The colour you are describing sounds like Twilight, but a photo would obviously confirm it.

Pics duly added although my pic taking is not the best ;D
I think the colour is fairly well represented in the full vase pic, but it probably is less brown than indicated in teh close ups of the base/casing.
Many thanks

Have you listed it on whitefriars.com? The colour and shape (although similiar) to me says no. Although it could just be the way the colour is showing up on the pics. Seems more like an amberish/brown colour but a little to deep for whitefriars. I am thinking no, but another confirmation on this would probably be good.

My feel is that it's not 9539, and the colour is wrong for WF, but it would be good to see what Emmi thinks (as author of the whitefriars.com colour guide  :hiclp:).

Hi Kane

I did query over the depth of the casing v the catalogue picture as well, but then saw this on the identified section.

The shape & proportions seem different as well, though.

I had a quick look at that one to. I like to compare the pics against each other to get a better comparision. The shape is very similiar to yours, and yes, in the black and white photos it is deceiving as the base looks like it should be clear glass. I still feel no on this one. The colour just doesn't seem right and i would have to agree with Cathy, the shape seems a little of. What is the height of your piece? As you did not mention this.

Sorry was trying to post this as well - the size is correct 7 3/8 " exactly.  The rim is just over 1 5/8th" and the diameter of the base is 1 1/2".

thanks to all :)
