Anyone heard of a UK Glass maker 1930's called Walmsley?
« on: October 27, 2012, 04:31:56 PM »
who made a stained glass window in Cumbria.
I've seen a vase that is apparently by him and it looks very like a Hartley Wood vase to me.  I'm curious.

Hi Rose
thanks for taking time to look for me  :)
yes, this is what I found and I believe it is a bad photograph of the same vase I am looking at...which for all the world looks like a Hartley Wood vase to me when you see the decor properly without that hideous picture.
I've never heard of Walmsley from the 1930's based in Cumbria though.  I wonder if Hartley Wood made stained glass and it's a mistaken id on the name somewhere down the line?
It didn't occur to me to check
I'll have another look.

 :-*  :D  :D
wow, how bizarre that I got that link in my head without knowing.
Thanks so much for your information.  I can't believe I got that - realising it was made at Hartley Wood.
Lancs is my family area  ;D

The window is very beautiful, I remember seeing it when I did a stand at a show up there many years ago. The bunnies are very sweet!

I tracked this vase down in the end and bought it   ;D
I've been looking for an original 30s Hartley Wood in their Antique range to add to my 30s collection.  This one is huge at  11 1/2" tall by 4 1/2" wide and is triangular ish in shape and very organic.
It looks nothing like the picture in the ad - their shot was terrible.
The link to the original auction with info is here as Rose linked to above  - the vase was designed by Dean Walmsley to be given as a birthday present in 1937, and was made for Walmsley by Hartley Wood.
