Isle of Wight Vase
« on: August 07, 2012, 02:59:11 PM »
Bought today - sold to me as IOW, checked on their site and I can't see it as recent production, however it looks fairly contemporary - pink, red and gold with iridized surface. Has remains of square gold label to base - any help confirming or not welcomed.

This design, by Jonathan Harris, is called "Victorian". It was only produced for one year - 1989, apart from in the miniature collection afterwards.
