reqest for pattern/No. for wfrs. bowl.
« on: April 10, 2010, 12:53:22 PM »
rather a coincidence after last Sunday's 'Cloudy Grey' - but genuinely unintentional  -  just happened to see this, and knew what it was (or nearly).  Third pic. shows the clear casing of the base, and the last pic. shows the side profile which has a thickening or waisted feel which can be seen as a slight bulge - which can be felt both inside and out.    Colour I believe is 'Cloudy Pink'  -  rim dia. is 9.3/4" and height is almost 4".  Outer areas of the the base have quite considerable wear as you'd expect, but otherwise good condition.       May have missed it, but can't seem to find this shape in Leslie Jackson, and I  have looked thru some of the pics. in the wfrs. catalogue on 'Whitefriars.com., but I'm a bit confused so wud vey appreciate someone's help please, and thanks for looking.

Could this be Nazeing rather than Whitefriars?

thanks Steven  -  regret I don't have any Nazeing to compare it with, and rashly hadn't considered that source.     Unfortunately, I have to go out now, so will be back on this eveing.    cheers  Paul S.

uhmmmm  -  this 'pink' does seem to have been colour used by Nazeing.   Apologies for the confusion assuming I do have it wrong :-[

Is the polished pontil mark slightly matt?

Would you like me to move this to Glass for greater exposure?

thanks Cathy.  I will examine the pontil mark more carefully this evening, and let you know.    Are you suggesting that a matt or shiny ponitl indent is a  good indicator of a specific production? :)     Now that I have looked at some examples of 1930's Nazeing Pink (via the screen), it does look very much as tho Steven is correct.   Due to a lack of hands on knowledge I hadn't realized until now the similarity (to inexperienced eyes) of some types of 1930's - 1940's Wfrs./Nazeing/Gray-Stan/Scottish glass  -  with a colourway of swirling/cloudy effect.    Comparing my recent cloudy/streaky Grey Wfrs. bowl with this 'pink' item, there is a strong pattern similarity - the deciding factor being possibly that Wfrs. didn't actually make this 'pink' bowl shape.    I was a little surprised that more people didn't post to correct me :-\, but suggest you give it a little more time where it is, but feel free to move if you feel so inclined. ;D

shud really have looked at my own pics. above  -  but the answer is yes, the indent is very matt  - compared for example with a piece of (probably) contemporary, and most of my other modern pieces of wfrs. which are quite shiny.   Does this confirm something one way or the other? :)
