Wish I could, but unfortunately I lost it during one of those IT nightmare moments. Perhaps someone here has a Sanctuary Blue, Sapphire Blue and ~Kingfisher blue vase collection they can photograph for you to get an idea of the difference in colours.

Sapphire Blue I'm familiar with, as I have some of my own - it's not dissimilar to a Holmegaard aqua blue - so it's mainly the difference between Kingfisher & Sanctuary...  :)

Do you have the Lesley Jackson book? There are a few items in Sanctuary Blue in it. If you don't have it I would buy it. It is available and no more than £30 usually less. Unlike the Wendy Evans book!

The Lesley Jackson book has lovely photos but maybe a little shor ton information compared to the Wendy Evans one.

I don't have any books on WF... yet... as I'm pretty new at buying any of it. Until now my focus has been Scandi glass.

But I'll definitely look into it! If my wallet isn't feeling too shell-shocked by the Harrogate glass fair 12th of March, I'm sure I'll be able to pick one up there or the antiques fair down the road from it cheap-ish.  :D

Just to reinforce points made about this shape not being exclusive to Whitefriars... and to add that in Scandinavian terms it wasn't just Sweden making these. My Holmegaard icebucket arrived today, looking very familiar.  :lol:

I had posted a link to an item on website here before that is also similar.

Tiffin Glass made a pattern or line called Swedish Optic  which is very simliar.  But the dark blue does not fit for Tiffin.  The lue color they used for the Swedish Optic line was most often a color they called Copen Blue which is a pale blue with almost electric blue undertone.

Exactly Nic. They also had a flat bottomed shape similar to the shape of your vase that is commonly called a flip vase.

The piece on my website is a Copen Blue Swedish Optic Rose bowl with 3 crystal ball feet.

Ah, another piece by Holmegaard which isn't dissimilar - and the colour's about right too.

AUCTION

It's a shame that the shapes don't seem to match around the base, though, otherwise I might have been closer to ID'ing mine.

With some exceptions (ie Carnival) US glass very rarely turns up in UK.

I have a number of bucket shaped vases similar to this of varying sizes, details and qualities so I think this "pattern" if you can call it that was very widely made in Europe. I suspect Italian for a couple of mine.

Nic's one though does look of WF or Scandi quality.
