Thanks. I think you are exactly right on the shape and colour way. It's a pretty piece but i think the foot has been reshaped. Carol

I was not offering to buy it, apologies if you thought i was.
Merely commenting on its attractiveness, despite the remodelled foot.

No problem it is a pretty piece as you say and I expect someone will want it. If it doesn't sell no matter as it displays well anyway.  :)

It's 100% Whitefriars but has been badly modified. It may be the best of a bad job for a damaged foot, but I'd personally have left it with damage. It will have very little value left in it like this. They are beautiful vases though.

I agree it's very sad but there it is. It is lovely though.
