Title: 10cm Amber Vase (mould Blown?) - ID = Sowerby's Worcester pattern
Post by: Gilead on March 19, 2008, 07:53:29 PM
This little vase has two flowers on the side and like a leaf plant on the other which sticks out, the base as the same flower pressed in to it, quit heavy for it's size, which is 10cm could any one tell me about this vase please,

Could this be a tumbler and not a vase, as i thought,it is also transparent when you hold it up to the light, tried finding the pattern pressed in to the base but on luck, any help is appreciated.

It's a tumbler from Sowerby's Worcester water set. 
1933 catalogue from Glen's Sowerby CDs, if I remember rightly. 
I had a pair in flint that it took me 3 yrs to identify!
