Iridised Top Hat. Wedgwood
« on: May 29, 2006, 11:32:14 AM »
Hi All,

When I was over in the UK, my Mum bought two vases round for me, which she bought on her travels.
One was a Chance posy (handkerchief) vase, turquoise "Flemish" (thank you for the correct ID, David!), which I am thrilled with. The other one is an iridised top hat.


        :shock: Click to enlarge :shock:

The lady who sold it, told my Mum it was Wedgwood.
Could any of you fab experts please tell me if it is or not?   :D  :D

As always, many thanks. :lol:

I've never seen a Wedgwood hat like that.  :shock:

 The Wedgwood top hats that I've seen are flat across the top. I know Wedgwood did lustre items like this candleholder/vase but very much a different colour. This looks a bit more like carnival glass, oops sorry, Iridised Art Glass .  :?

Don't know but I like it.  :)

Hi Della - it's a fascinating piece, and what a pretty iridescence - but I'm sorry I am unable to add any info about it. Apologies.
