Huge vase with silver aventurine, signed Hanley? ID?
« on: October 10, 2017, 12:42:41 PM »
I bought this huge studio vase the other day because I liked it. Carrying it to my car gave my muscles a good workout  :P

It is 39 cm high, 15.5 cm across at the rim, and about 20 cm at the widest point. It has what appears to be silver aventurine under a clear casing. There is a chunky applied rim. The signature may be acid etched, I am not sure, perhaps Hanley. The base is ground flat.

Any ideas of who made it? I hope the pictures help. Thanks.

No idea but the silver is silver foil, not aventurine

Could it be by Ian Hankey?

Signature is sandblasted. No idea who though.
