Is this a flint bark vase?

Oh dear that base doesn't look right does it! the only un-pontiled WF I have seen have had a level base with a sort of spirally soft textured finish - how would you describe that in techy speak?  :lol:   But I've not seen any with that indented ring.
Thank you very much!

I know what you mean Lynne!  Thanks to David for all the hard work!

This is the nearest I can find to my own:

But the jury's out on this one too  :?

Maybe it is my eyes or my monitor, but the picture of the base looks like it is a moulded base with a superimposed LG moulded in the center.  It doesn't look like a pontil mark to me at all  :?

You're right, the photo is strange.  The base of the vase has a very slightly raised dimple in the centre surrounded by which it is fairly rough but  there is no "mark" at all.   :?

I'm going to stick my neck out and say it is no WF. The base is wrong, the tops wrong and the close up of the pattern in the base photo looks wrong.
No retreat, No surrender.

Hi,
This is definitely not "Moravia" pattern from Sklo Union.
Process of elimination is perhaps the only way forward with these bark effect items.
Regards,
Marcus

Dear friends - have posted reply to the Bark query on 'isit' on the Whitefriars.com site. I don't think the bark is out of Whitefriars but can't say where it is from. Vidfletch and I are still searching for clues::))) - still jolly well hunting up others of these here bark copies.

So,
Not Davidson, not Sklo Union, not Ravenhead, Royal Cast(i)le, unlikely to be Jones & Co, (merely importers)
anyone have any way forward with this, given that so many have positive "no" responses?
