Chance Handkerchief/Posy Vases
« on: February 19, 2006, 11:39:52 PM »
Hi all,

HANDKERCHIEF VASES
The site has now been updated to include a full cross-reference for all Handkerchief vases. This includes size, pattern, colour and shape.

To the best of my knowledge there are 11 different vases with printed surfaces, 5 'Tinted' types in 6 colours and four different sizes  :shock:  <exploding head emoticon required!>

As with all research being conducted 'live' online, omissions are inevitable, so please do tell me if you find a vase that isn't listed (there are probably many more to go).

Click the 'www' button just below this message to access the site or e-mail me. Many thanks.
David

Two Posy Vases picked up recently, both quite unusual:

Regular stripe in deep orange, but scarcer 5" height:

Wide band in cream & chocolate, 4" height:

Is anyone else collecting Handkerchief Vases???

David check this 4" gingham one out.  It has an interesting colour combination.

Perhaps they will let you have a pic.

I do have every example of Gingham, and this would appear to be the yellow/white combination. I'll get back with a photo (when I've found the vase!)
