Is this a flint bark vase?
« on: September 01, 2006, 04:08:54 PM »
This is 5 and a third inches high and has a diameter of 2 and three quarters.  I have some other WF but am not sure about this.  Cheers  :D

I'd say yes.   :D  The flint bark vases are quite scarce too.  I expect Emmi will be along to fill in the details that I can't supply.

I was mainly worried about  the base as it's not completely flat all over but after looking on whitefriars.com at another base - it's the same Hooray!!!! I bought it for 5chf (2.25gbp).  I by-passed it last week as I wasn't sure :roll:   I've learnt my lesson now  :D

Again, thank you all for your help.

Hiya Flick, it does look a lot like a flint W/F bark vase but there's something about the rim that doesn't look quite right to me - does it have a line around or is it an effect of the photograph.  I ask because all of the W/F bark vases I've had have (quite a few in the past but no flint ones admittedly) don't have that 'line' around the rim.  There's a kingfisher one in my shop at the moment - I've just tried to compare them.  I'm probably wrong (I hope I am anyway) but none of mine have looked like yours appears to at the rim. <<<doom and gloom merchant - soz!

Can you take a photo from slightly above to get the rim in a different angle?

Isn't the line the other side of the rim reflected?
