Is this a Whitefriars Wave Ribbed 8473 vase ?
« on: January 06, 2017, 09:06:32 AM »

Hi, I'm pretty sure this is a WF 8473 Wave Ribbed vase - but I still wouldn't bet my life on it  ;D

For a start its condition looks suspiciously good for something that could go back to the 30s and also there appear to be an awful lot of WF lookalikes about - so I'm not taking any chances!
A confirmation would be great.

It's quite thin walled and considering its size - 25.5 cm ( 10 in ) it's quite a 1066 gm lightweight.
Its rim diam is 16.5 cm ( 6.5 in )
If tapped it has a good ring tone
Its colour is a light green - I'm not good on colours - it could be Sea Green.

Thanks for looking :)
Scott

Hi Marc, thanks  :)

Just out of curiosity, can you tell a 30s one from say a 50s one , or are they all essentially the same  -regardless of the year in which they were produced ?

They are all essentially the same. The only way to tell if you have an early one is by the colour. I.e. Sanctuary Blue or Emerald are early colours. Also the 15" ones are early too.
