Vase with internal vertical ribbing, WF?
« on: December 04, 2012, 02:01:10 PM »
Hi All,

Could this be WF?

Brown Aubergine vase/glass cased in clear, 150mm tall, smooth base, internal vertical optic ribbing


Please no insults if I'm way off  :)

Cheers

Looks fairly modern to my eyes, wouldn't have thought Whitefriars was a contender, sorry. See what others think.....

Do you have a picture of the internal ribbing and one of the rim..?

Hi,

I tried to photograph the ribbing but it doesn't show, it's very similar to WF's vase with optic ribbing

hello Retro  -  were you suggesting this kind of optic ribbing...  http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,27308.msg149538.html#msg149538...     or did you have in mind the wave/swag type of effect.

I sincerely hope no one here would insult you if you were wrong :)

meant to say that I'd agree with Greg  -  this looks modern and not Whitefriars.

Hi Greg,

It's vertical straight lines, no wave/swag, just straight down lines,

Many thanks  :)

Hello,

I'm afraid that this is not Whitefriars. There are too many characteristics that say 'no' against the one possible indicator of vertical ribbing - something that was done by many other manufacturers/makers.

This piece looks younger than Whitefriars, ie. post 1980.

Hope that helps, Nigel
