We seem to get few of Stennett-Willson's creations on the Board - maybe not so much interest these days - anyway very recently acquired the smoky blue one, which completes the trio of colours, so thought I'd post a pic or two (sounds like a cue for..........'got to pick a pocket or twooooo - oo oo, got to pick etc. etc.)
Produced, apparently, between 1969 and 1972 (King's Lynn glass became part of Wedgwood in 1969), and early examples would originally have had the paper label as shown - the sandblasted backstamp, which is an image of the Portland vase, seems to appear only on some pieces. It doesn't look like the stoppers were provided with matching Nos., and stoppers appear to be colourless for even the coloured bottles.
I'm missing one stopper, so if anyone has a spare ...
Described as a dimple-based whiskey decanter, they all seem to have a ground/polished pontil depression under the base, and average c. 255 m/m in height.
Design wise they are practical but perhaps a tad too minimalist - although the coloured pieces improve the looks. Other RSW decanters from this early Wedgwood period are similar in plainness, although by the mid '70's there seems to have been a change to producing traditional cut decanters and some - for example Dove and Derwent are very appealing.
