* Wanted * Burtles Tate - Ostrich shape flower vase
« on: March 19, 2018, 09:02:43 PM »
Hi
Just on the off chance, my father would really like a Burtles Tate Ostrich shape flower vase, Rd120808  04/03/1889, I would be very grateful to hear from anyone who may have one to offer.
Alternatively if anyone sees one for sale I would also be very grateful for pointers in the right direction.

Thanks very much
Mike

I got curious about what I ought to be looking for.  :)
I found this.
Is it the ostrich on the thick base? You need to scroll down a little to find it.
Any particular colour?

I'll keep my eyes open. If i had ever found one, I would not have ignored it. :)
I haven't ever seen one.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Hi Sue
Yes thatís the one, any colour would do, there are few references about them so I donít know what Other colours there maybe. We have some similar references from ďmarking timesĒ the same as your link.
Thanks very much
Mike

My most exciting B&T find was a damaged wall pocket.
And I can assure you, I was really, really, really excited! ;D

 :o That is a collection indeed! It must have taken years and years to find all those.
Do i see a couple of contemporary Sunderland vases too?
