Inwald "Picadilly" vase puzzle - can you help?
« on: January 03, 2007, 11:19:04 AM »
Has anyone seen Inwald's Picadilly vases (aka Pinwheel) with a file pattern on the diamond shapes?

I've put illustrations and an explanation of the puzzle / question here. I would be incredibly grateful for any response. THANK YOU so much.

I don't recall seeing any of these, but it might just be that I wasn't looking.

I'll keep an eye out at the auctions for you Glen,

Thank you very much!

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Thanks Pamela.

Can I further as if anyone has ANY examples of the Picadilly aka Pinwheel pattern (but not Sowerby's "Derby"). I would be grateful for any information.

Thank you.

(EDITED TO ADD: Pamela, I have seen the pink jardiniere and plate on your website - lovely pieces).
