Half mannequin vase
« on: April 14, 2018, 12:00:21 AM »
Spotted one of these in my local charity shops, well, it looked something like this...

It was different with it having black/brown strapped glass around it. On the bottom was a big partial gold label reading "Keswick". Label looked modern. It just got me curious, don't know of any studios in Keswick, maybe it was a fancy retail label? The bottom and the pontil were coarsely ground, suggesting maybe a small studio, or maybe Chinese? I could see mould lines running up on either side of it.

Just wondered.

I also see quite a few handbag shapes around, they often have the same colours and patterns as the torsos, presuming they are from the same source. Sometimes with Italian sounding labels like 'Vincenza'.

The handbags are Chinese, I've seen plenty in TKMaxx, with their "Made in China" stickers still on, no matter what other labels might say.
I've never seen a handbag I don't think is Chinese. Or teapot pwt. :)
I'm fairly sure the torsos are Chinese too, but i don't get to TKMaxx as often as I used to, to check.
