Possible Nazeing?(or something else)
« on: December 03, 2017, 09:08:19 PM »
The green colouring in this vase made me think of Nazeing and the unpolished pontil mark.
Having looked at a few Nazeing images I have not seen the brown colour.
I know swirl patterns are difficult to pin down, hopefully someone has some input.
The vase is 304mm high and 135mm diameter.
Thanks for your help,
Tim

It's wise to be careful when using the word 'no' - but my reasons for speculating that the answer is negative Tim, are twofold, mainly  ......

one is that whilst the factory did create some colours that do have a marbled appearance, your piece with its almost two separate colours doesn't  appear in the Geoffrey C. Timberlake book ........

the other reason is that although Nazeing did make the cylinder shape, it looks to have been very rare, and early when it did so.

I'm also not seeing the bubble structure that we see so often from that factory, so my thoughts are not Nazeing.                 Nigel will have a far greater insight into the possibilities of whether or no Nazeing for your vase - perhaps he might see this and look in. :)

Hello Tim,

Whilst the way that this piece is finished is consistent with post-war Nazeing pontil marks, that is where any relationship stops IMHO.

The thickness of the glass; the way that the colour is laid in with a sort of 'pebble' look; and the strange erratic wavy line are not consistent with their work.

Whilst a cylinder is one of their shapes, it is also for a number of other manufacturers.

Overall therefore I would say not Nazeing.

Cheers, Nigel

Thanks to Paul and Nigel for there comments on my posting. It was the shade of green and the bottom finish that took me in Nazeing direction.
After much looking at nazeing images that brown does not seem to feature anywhere in there designs.
This vase will be getting some tall stemmed flowers in the summer.
Thanks again,
Tim

I suspect studio glass and more recent than Nazeing.
It looks irritatingly familiar, (as in; I think I saw what that was once, but I've forgotten).
Guernsey? (the ground pontil mark would be odd, if it is.)
Midsummer?
Adrian Sankey?
something else I've forgotten?  ;D
Cheers, Sue (M)

Peter Holmes or John Deacons are possibilities, worth asking them.

For what it is worth I would look to the far east, it has many of the typical features, somewhat poorly executed generic design, large in size, unpolished pontil mark.

Possibly Romanian via TK Maxx about 12 or so years back, if memory serves  ;)  :)

I've a feeling that John's comment about the unpolished pontil depression, might not hold up for all - or even that much - of Nazeing  ......  don't have any of mine now, but seem to remember they were sometimes quite dull.
