Poss Whitefriars
« on: December 20, 2006, 01:06:06 PM »
Dear All

I've been lurking for a while due to feeling like crap but it's soooo good to see this board up again and in such a wonderful new format.

I haven't even been combing Geneva much for glass (something must be wrong with her :(!)

BUT have found this:

It looks like a Whitefriars 9653 the proportions look OK and is 9 inches tall (not 9 and a half), but was it made in this sort of colour?

Once more - thanks to all of you for such a lovely community.   :)

Hi Flick, Caithness also made this shape, but i'm not sure about the colour, i had that shape with a bluetit engraved on to it, and had the initilas D O on the base, until a bouncy Dalmatian puppy knocked a corner table over :'(

Not Whitefriars... but Caithness could be a possibility. Either way, it's fairly modern, I would say.

I recently had a near identical vase in green with a 'Sea Glasbruk Kosta' foil label.

I'm glad Ivo mentioned Sweden - I think it's Aseda too.

I have just bought a lot with a very similar vase, with the typical Whitefriars rounded pontil (still wrapped up, but I think it is red ) - what are the characteristics to look for if it is actually Aseda instead?

typical Whitefriars rounded pontil

??? rounded polished out pontil marks are and were the industry standard.

I forgot to look for the pontil, shows how much you forget! It's actually completely flat on the base.
