Question re: Sowerby 2583 vase.
« on: April 16, 2011, 04:56:54 PM »
Hi everyone, I have a query with regard to the base of the Sowerby 2583 vases and wonder if someone could enlighten me. I have seen many of these vases but always with 4 feet at the base. The one I purchase today has a stepped base (see attached picture) and was wondering if this base is scarcer than the ones with feet as illustrated on Glen's 2nd CD.
Many thanks for your thoughts
Hil  :)

My memory is getting a bit rusty now and I'm ashamed to say that I've forgotten what 2583 looks like.  However, your vase looks more like 2487 to me.  I have never seen one turned over like this, but people will do anything if they are desparate to increase sales!

Ah thank you Adam,
Of course you are completely right - it is not the 2583 but the 2487. I knew there was something unusual about it and in my senior moment, focussed on the base rather than the turning.
Thanks for your help
Hil :)

Hi, I have a lovely one of these in uranium yellowish green,with the flower holder inside. Are they not bigger than the ones with feet? Mine is 9 inches across and 6 inches tall. I have a blue one with the feet somewhere in the roof!!!    Cheryl
