Orange "bark" glass vase
« on: October 01, 2012, 01:24:54 PM »
Hi everyone
This vase has been donated to us to raise funds for the hospice. I wonder if one of you kind ladies and gents could help us to identify its maker. We wondered if it might possibly be a Whitefriars piece as it has a "bark" pattern??
Many thanks in advance
Sarah

Sorry the photo is sideways :-[

Your link has gone a bit wonky but here it is: http://i1126.photobucket.com/albums/l604/HelenAndDouglasHouse/Whitefriars1.jpg

That is not a bit of Whitefriars, not sure who made it though. How big is it?
