Sue that is a fabulous display!  I always thought they were "what can I do with that awkward window sill at the top of the stairs vases", but I stand corrected!!!!!!

Sorry the window looks so grubby - it's actually salt as this window faces the sea.  I've only found 3 of these in 3 years...............guess they're not quite so common down here.

Have a great weekend all
Cat

Hello cat, you've got nice ones!

I don't think your purple and red ones are the Empoli make, but the green one, I think is - it's certainly the most common maker, but the pattern is not the most common, and you have the correct stopper!
I've got examples of the same 3 you have, the purple one is a BEEZER, isn't it! I've only seen yours, mine and one other - the "one other" had a big price tag on it - £70! (I paid £7 - a lot for me >:D)
Cheers, Sue (M)

Hi all,

The picture of Sue's kitchen is distorted for me and looks slightly diagramatic :( Looks great though - very imposing ;)

Never-the-less the amethyst vase in question appears to be from a bubbly range that I have always known as by Royal Brierley. There is a cross-over in the shapes used for the Rainbow Ware range by them, if you are looking for others in the series.

If Sue's purple one is the same as mine, it's not bubbly, Nigel. It has a texture on the surface of a sort of diamond shapes grid. The red one is bubbly, if it's the same as mine.

Tiger, your Webb bucket vase is quite unlike my amethyst one. Mine has very controlled bubbles, small at the bottom, bigger and longer at the top, but very regylar. Your vase has round irregular bubbles. They're the same shape, though!
Cheers, Sue (M)

Many years ago I had a unit in one of those collectable shops. I could knock out those genie bottles for £12 all day every day.

You must live in a much wealthier part of the uk than me!
I have always liked them.

I really want to put those fabby huge chemist's bottles in the kitchen, the kind with the strange luminous dichroic liquids in them, but they're just a tad on the expensive side.

I'm sorry about the quality of the picture, Nigel.
It's not distorted though, that's exactly how the camera took it. Probably not in focus, quite possibly a freebie camera from D.  >:D It's an ancient pic.
I'm not au fait with jiggerypokery to make it look how the camera didn't.
Cheers, Sue (M)
