Wedgwood RSW numbers (vases)
« on: March 17, 2011, 11:45:41 AM »
Does anyone have the RSW numbers (eg. RSW 25 etc.) for Kings Lynn and Wedgwood's glass vases please?

I'm particularly interested in the numbers for the Lunar/Moon Crater, Textured, Snowflake and Cylinder range of vases and the bottle shaped decanter produced from around 1967.

From Susan Tobins excellent book. Cylinder vase - small narrower version RSW 20/1 medium RSW 20/2,   large RSW 20/3 (page 65 illustration)

from Ronald Stennett Willson website ;Cylinder vases: RSW20 7.5inch: RSW20/1  9 inch: RSW20/2  10 inch: RSW20/3

But unfortunately that is all I can find. The moon crater and Snowflake vases are listed only by name as you have them .

As to "Textured" and the decanter - there are a number of "bottle "shaped decanters. If you can post a photo I will see if I can match it with one in the book. The same for the textured vase.

Thanks Jakgene - here's the two images of the Textured and Bottle vases - They are about 8" high.

The decanter looks like an RSW 43 without its stopper. Stopper was cork shaped, flat topped, with 2 small bubbles with a larger flat bubble in between them - similar to the domed paperweights. it came in clear, blue or topaz. Size not given. photo on p 23 of Susan Tobins book.

Mods - am I allowed to photograph the book page and post the picture if it is accredited to ST's book? or would that be a breach of copyright?

cannot see the textured one yet - will keep looking

RSW 626 is listed as a textured vase  8.25 inches made in clear, blue, topaz or green. no photo though. This is the only one listed that I can see where size and colour match - so may be it.

Sorry can't be of more help.
off to beddy byes now  :sleep:

Hi Jak, it would be a breach of copyright and board policy, but thanks for asking. :thup:

Thanks Anne, that's what I thought - and why I didn't do it - but one picture could clarify so easily Sigh!
