Marked Conran on pontil ??
« on: October 17, 2012, 04:43:23 PM »
Hi, Sorry but no pictures (didnt think I would have trouble finding it). I have been asked about a pair of vases in a charity shop (i try to help as much as I can, which isnt a lot  ;D) They are Ovoid in shape with open end, 12 inches high and have an orange swirl wrapped around from top to bottom. The raised mark says 'CONRAD' with a circular symbol I cant make out. There is some wear to the base. I dont think they are anything special, they seem to be a department store type. I havent seen the mark and cant find anything online. Any help appreciated
Pete. :-)

Does it say Conran or Conrad on the bottom of the vase?
if it says Conran as per your heading then it may be something Jasper Conran designed perhaps, but I can't imagine his pieces having a raised mark to be honest.

I have seen a few Jasper Conran designs and wouldn't put this down as his. The pieces just dont have the quality look that they have. The raised name and the raised symbol, a backwards 'C' with a circle in the opening of the C. It looks similar to a Globe in the stand. I still haven't seen anything similar.
