Isle of Wight Studio Glass aurene vase, unusual shape
« on: October 21, 2012, 02:44:51 PM »
Well I think it is a shape I have not seen in Aurene before...

It was a swap for a Whitefriars bark vase, oh happy days!

Quite thick and heavy (which surprised me when I picked it up), 13cm tall, usual flame mark to base. I wonder if it is a later piece, given the shape - more 1982 rather than 1974.

Any thoughts?

John

I've got a teeny-tiny but half-inch thickglass pin dish in Aurene - it did come in some unusual shapes - there are short fat cylinders which did not become a standard shape later on... there are Mdina bowls this shape though.

Is your vase really bright orange? :o

Depends how you light it. ;D

Not long to the National now, I will ask Ron about it.

Here's an image of a couple of Gold Aurene cylinders - non-standard sizes, and an Aurene pin dish, again a non-standard piece.

We just need the fabby square shaped Aurene perfume bottle our Guinea-pig queen has to complete the picture of really unusual Aurene shapes so far discovered....

unless somebody else knows of more?

There are, of course, my massive cylinders, but I have seen a couple of others.
