Could this be early Powell, Whitefriars?

Hi all,

Well said PDA. This is something that I've been pointing out to people for some years.

Of course, that's not to take away from either Powell's reputation, nor the quality of their work, but there is so much more available out there - much of which is still not researched and largely overlooked by most collectors. Some of it IS known and collected, but undervalued for its origin and quality.

I believe there is still a long way to go within collecting of British glass, in particular (which is, of course, my major subject area), and, not to suggest the rest of the world would be thoughtless - throughout the 20th century.

Happy hunting everyone, there's still a lot of fun to be had out there!!

Max, could you update the picture link - add the picture into GlassGallery please? Did you manage to find out more about this piece?

Well I'd like to see this piece very much but your tinypic link doesn't open for me Max, and neither can I see it on .com?  Am I really losing it after all?

Emmi it was an old post bumped up so the links need refreshing which is what I asked Max to do. Hopefully when she does you'll be able to see the pic. :)

Here it is:

http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-3475

The facts just didn't add up for this one in hindsight.  Still an interesting vase though with lots of age wear to the base.  No pontil mark, I should have realised this wasn't WF...but got a bit carried away.  :roll:

Edit:  Sold now - but only for what I paid for it..  :lol:
I am not a man

Easy to see why you were excited by this one Max, got a lot of similiarities to W/F that's for sure.  It's happened to me!! And I expect to lots of other collectors!  Emmi
