Inverted rim bud vase Id help please. ID = WMF
« on: May 15, 2017, 01:50:27 PM »
Hi, any help with this vase much appreciated  :)

It's 13cm high and has a faint hue of blue - there are small patches of iridescence inside- perhaps a sign of age? It was very dirty when I bought it.
It has a flat polished base ( quite a lot of wear ), otherwise I'd have gone down the Whitefriars route.
Its rim is inverted - if that's the right term.

Thanks for looking
Scott

Hi  Della  :)
Many thanks, it does look like one of his Turmalin series-I've also got a Rosenthal vase , a bit larger and rounder but with a similar sort of rim,
which might also have been designed by WW- I'll have to dig it out !

Hi, found another - same colour, same rim, same flat polished base ( less wear on this one though).

Ht - just under 20cm. ( 8 )

More than sure now that theyre part of WMFs Turmalin series by Wilhelm Wagenfeld - not that I had any doubts before  ;)
