not necessarily Flick - but to be absolutely certain why don't you post a picture together with it's dimensions on the IsIt? section of the Whitefriars website?

I wouldn't like to commit one way or the other...there is something "not quite right" about it, and the height is a LOT shorter than the basic 6" bark. Without having a "feel" I have to say I do not know.

I have been without internet or a land line for nearly a week now due to almighty cock up with BT.  And do not expect to have it again for another 10 days.  I am intermitently using someone else's PC, so hence the non appearance earlier on this topic.  My old e-mail addresses of course are not working, but I have registered a yahoo one on this forum, should anyone need to be in touch and I can send and receive when  have access to this PC....it is driving me nuts, feel like I'm on a raft in a storm in a gale...it is THAT bad without my usual communication system. Hey Ho, will be glad to get back to normal.  Emmi

I too am unsure of this vase. The rim suggests that it may have been machine made, likewise the texture appears different from my examples. The rim reminds me of  the harlequin tumbler sets which turn up every so often & have been discussed before:

Hmm...well that puts the cat amongst the pigeons!  :lol:  I still feel that it's WF, I did realise this vase was shorter, but just allowed for variation...

The trouble is, I can't think of what else it could be if not WF.  I've never seen a Jones & Co bark vase that isn't square, and the overall quality of Flicks' vase looks excellent.

Maybe a pic of the base would throw some more light?

PS:  Emmi, hope you get your phone line sorted soon...I know how rotten it is when you're marooned with no computer!   :x

I'll put a messages to Vidfletch on the wf.com site.  I'll have my hat handy nearby in case I have to eat it.   :wink:  :lol:

Having had another look none of my WF bark vases has that plain band at the top. The bark goes all the way through.
No retreat, No surrender.

Wow! I didn't know that this would cause such a furore.  Perhaps we need a database of WF "copies" and/or look-a-likes - I would like to vote my vase as being one of the first on there :wink:

Anyway - here's the base:

I've uncrossed my fingers now - ready for the worst  :D

Well, it has been debated before, I think. Might be worth having a look for other topics on this board where 'bark-alike' vases have been discussed. Not Ingridglas is it?

Here's a few I found...

Uh oh.  That base doesn't bode well at all.  I've only got a couple of bark vases, but both mine have ground and polished pontil marks.

Edit:  Thanks for going to the trouble to search those links out David.  The Ingrid glas link isn't working for me, but I don't think this is Ingrid glass anyway, although it'd be my closest contender.  Almost certain this isn't Ravenhead... or the 'Royale Castle' type (which I think Vidfletch identified as actually Ravenhead recently), and the only Jones & Co ones I've seen are square  So...if not WF, then I'm stumped.   :(
