No Patrick. Try the turquoise cylinder vase. See another in Jackson, but I seriously doubt elsewhere!! And, I've had quite enough advertising/linking of eBay items for today thanks  ;) :)

Hi Andy,
 Not sure you are allowed to do that..................  the mods might have 'Hobbed' you

Sure you can Patrick, but in the Market Place. :)

being an avid collector of Baxter experimental................   Do you still own it ?

I bought it years before the books and exhibitions of the mid 1990's, and used deduction to work out that it was Whitefrairs. Beyond that, in those days, was purely guesswork. It forms part of my small collection of Studio range pieces, in which I have one example of each to form a super group - all but one bought as a collector. So, I'm much attached to it ;) :)

However, the photo also shows the production piece in ruby and kingfisher, etc. It's my guess that Ray made the experimental pieces in twos or threes, but the production wares were made in considerably larger quantities, as mentioned earlier in the thread. It doesn't matter how sharp our minds are, we've (mostly) all experienced the "....Now what did I come in here for??" routine. Therefore, is it not possible for the wires to get crossed years after an event.........and Ray has become a victim of what we all experience?? Not casting aspersions here I hope you all understand  :o Just thinking out loud  ;) :)

Hi Nigel,
 So glad you still have it...............  
 Perhaps one day we can have an exhibition of EXPERIMENTAL pieces at the Cambridge Glass Fair..............  
I want to thank you for offering to exhibit a few of your Wuidart and 1930 catalogue pieces at the fair Sunday 27th February. Terry tells me it is going to be a wonderful display of Whitefriars at their best !

All best wishes,
                     Patrick.
Ps,
   This video from a fair in 2008 shows Ray and the usual suspects including your sales display, well worth a look.

Not bad! Around what i expected, no surprises though.
Interestingly, it had 97 watchers, out of 3800 Art Glass items on ebay, it was the 3rd highest after
2 Tiffany lamps!
