Hello! First post so I'm hoping I've done this correctly!

I have two pieces from a lot of estate sale glass. The owners had a bit of everything... many quality pieces; Stueben, Kosta sommerso, Erickson, Murano etc.

Both of these are quite heavy with concave, polished pontils. No marks or signatures.
The taller blue piece is 5 1/2", 14cm tall.
The clear, squat piece is 3 1/4", 8+ cm tall.

Thanks for any help you can give me!
Pam

Welcome to the forum Pam.

Both pieces were made in the UK by, Whitefriars and are known as Molar vases/bowls.

Hope this helps a little. :)

Thank you so much! It helps a lot! It would of taken me forever scrolling through photos of modern glass on sites until I found them (which I tried...). The only pieces of Whitefriars I'm familiar with are the bark vases so that company didn't occur to me. Thanks again.
