Help with ID whitefriars vase please
« on: March 18, 2012, 08:14:35 AM »
I have purchased this vase and think it is a fake but not 100% sure as the pit marks are in the correct place.
the base is not smooth and you can feel the pits on the inside of the vase.
 ???

any help realy appreciated.

There should be a polished concave depression on a moulded base, the fakes have a moulded depression often with a polished base. 

Judging by your photos yours looks fine.

It's particularly the 'dimples' on the centre block you should be looking at.  According to the website that Dirk gave you (above), your bricklayer appears to be genuine.  :)

thanks all,

the dint in the base is highly polished, do you know if you should be able to feel the dimples on the middle brick on the inside?  Sorry for all the questions just I have never seen a real one (I hope till now).

Hi all :)

I have had a close look at the photos of the tangerine drunken bricklayer  vase and it looks perfect. :)
