i.d of Green glass urn witH stepped foot

I picked up at car boot, was real dirty, has lovely green tinge to glass, has polished base with polished pontil, and rounded polished rim also, with a little spiral going to pontil and ending on the underside of stepped base. Any ideas to age, is quite heavy at about 1.4kg and 25cm tall on a 11cm base,, a very classy feel to it. Thanks for any suggestions S.

I'm sure you'll find that this is Powell/Whitefriars. I'm not good on colours for them, but Emerald comes to mind.

PS. I'd love to be it's keeper ;) :)

Hi there, the picture is quite close to colour(maybe a bit darker and clearer in reality), I would say it is definitely a green though, cheers

I looked at that yesterday Chris.  It is certainly very similar but the top part of the vase  pictured by the OP is somewhat different.  Much shorter in the catalogue photo, more extended in the photos above.

But I would agree it is likely a Whitefriars vase in the Emerald colour, maybe just slightly different to the catalogue as a
one off version?

Had the pattern number and a line drawing in my notes from a Sea green one I had which sold well coincidently but that was about 5 years ago.
Yes it does differ from the line drawing in the catalogue in your link, maybe a poor artist like me. It from the 1940  catalogue I presume? is it in any other catalogue. Do you still have the 'big book' should be in there will have a look through the Jackson book.
Confident Nigel is correct though it is Whitefriars '30s
Chris :)

Yes it is from the 1940 catalogue.  Can't find it elsewhere but then there is not a lot of earlier cats.  No it is not in the MOL book, other than the line drawing already shown above.
