Cloudy pink and white swirled vase, clear foot - ID = Nazeing
« on: February 28, 2013, 09:51:50 AM »
I need help with this one, I have been going around in circles... Height 22cm, pink and white cased in clear with foot that shows a distinct blue tint. Ground but unpolished pontil mark, fire polished rim.

I had a mooch through the Scottish factories but drew a blank, could it be from Nazeing?

I don't think the base is right for Nazeing... but I can't think of anything else!
I would discout Grey-Stan, for the base and for the application of the enamels - I don't think Grey-Stan would have allowed them to stretch and swirl throughout a piece in this manner. The foot isn't Vasart-y... I don't think.
Saunders and Wallace would be marked, and again, the rough ground pontil mark isn't right.
Adrian Sankey...?
I'm not even sure of the period - just casting about wildly.  ::) :)
Cheers, Sue (M)

Date wise I assume in the heyday for this sort of thing, 1930s or thereabouts.  Funnily enough I handled a Greystan bowl in similar colours a few weeks ago (before I picked this vase up) and from memory they do differ. The Greystan had a wider variety of bubble sizes and more swirls and suchlike, quality seemed a little more refined too.

Don't think I can offer anything positive John, except..........  the dull pontil depression doesn't exclude Nazeing, but have to say that I can't see this shape in the Timberlake book.         It would seem that Nazeing pinks can vary quite a lot too, so that's not a great deal of help  -  but
I'm not seeing perhaps the right bubbles on your vase  -  although that could be a screen problem more.
I seem to recall that we have discussed the bubble issue on Nazeing frequently - so perhaps you might find something of help if you try the Search facility. :)

Grey-Stan is definitely much more refined - that's a good word for the difference!

I can see the enamel "halo" in the pics, Paul.  :) I must have the correct face-furniture on today.

Thanks Paul, I did a bit of searching the other night re Nazeing, I was a bit tired and what I read left me confused - quite a familiar feeling. :D

Will have another look on the weekend. Meanwhile, the only photo I have to hand at present showing the odd bubble:

I'm not so sure that Sue really has been to the right branch of Specsavers ;D ;D

This is postwar Nazeing and is pictured in the 'working drawings' on p86 of Geoff Timberlake's book.
