Hi moreglass,
Have you seen these with labelling, or in Jones and Co adverts?
TIA,
Le Casson

The green textured vase was already id'd by Anne.

#2. Whitefriars "Nailhead" vase designed by Geoffrey Baxter in 1967. 16cm high. I think the colour is 'Meadow' but not too sure.

Enjoying being in the Midlands.......some people are just amazing....

Sorry Della,
Given the wide range of bark finish vases, I thought it might be an idea to ask. As we know Jones and Co, imported from Czechoslovakia, and many Rosice vases are mistaken for Whitefriars, visual sightings of Jones labels on such pieces might be important in eliminating other manufacturers. I am not doubting Emmi's attribution, merely attempting to clarify what the state of current knowledge is.
regards,
Marcus

Oh Marcus,
Please dont apologise. I totally understand where you are coming from, actually having more than a few (non-Whitefriars & unattributed) bark vases of my own.

7, not convinced that these are Czech, and I can think of only one item from one factory, made by Sklo Union, in red glass. These small vases seem to appear in many colours, including red, and often claimed as Czech, WF, Sklo Union, but I am tending toward Scandinavian manufacture.
Regards,
Marcus


I noticed a green one of these is on eBay currently... I meant to note it but didn't. I'll try and find it again for a colour reference.


Found it! Quite a bright green... http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=110038297346

Anne, your green nailhead I see is being given a Jones and Co "label"....
It looks like a Whitefriars Nailhead and in Meadow Green.  I can see why it might be thought of as something else as the photo is not that clear.  BUT...the height you have given is within the catalogue parameters.  It should be approx 4.5cms square and two of the sides should be textured and two plain sides.  If this is correct, then "our" attribution is correct.  All the Jones vases I have seen have been fully textured all sides, usually a lot larger and their green is not similar to Meadow Green.  Emmi

No 7.  I have 2 of these and one carries a lable I will get a photo tomorrow as it is somewhere in the garage. It is Bond Ware Japan.

Hi Emmi,
I was not questioning your identification of the "nailhead", merely trying to find why this was thought to be Jones and Co.
Whilst Max has posted responses to IsItWF, in an attempt to staighten the record, I also sent corrections to the site owner regarding so-called Jones and Co bark finishes in the mistaken identities section, last time I looked they still had not been changed to show these as "Moravia" pattern vases.
The vase in question in this thread is not a Jones and Co import from Sklo Union.

Ian, Thanks, this will be very useful to see.

Regards,

Marcus

No Marcus, I didn't take it that way at all, was just really asking Anne to confirm the dimensions just in case the photo was deceiving.  I understood what you were getting at. No problem! Emmi
