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?

Thank you very much!

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.
