No-one likes general adverts, and ours hadn't been updated for ages, so we're having a clear-out and a change round to make the new ones useful to you. These new adverts bring in a small amount to help pay for the board and keep it free for you to use, so please do use them whenever you can, Let our links help you find great books on glass or a new piece for your collection. Thank you for supporting the Board.

« Last post by bat20 on June 23, 2017, 07:06:11 PM »
Hello survivors of the heat wave,I came across this cool sapphire understated vase on one of the really hot days early this week,I'm fairly sure it's the piece in the whitefriars 1949 catalogue described as 9301 although I can't find one online? It's described as 4" but is I fact 5 1/4" in ht.....is it?and are they rare?..thanks.

Thank-you. :)
It makes better records when the thread is fully illustrated.
The slightly later shape, completely consistent with the date.
The very early ones have a bell shaped bowl, not straight sided.

The Verdala shape is usually described as a bowl or dish. To be a charger it has to be big, smaller examples in that shape I would call plates.

The Kyoto Pine is not mine, something I snapped a quick photo of several years ago.

Would the small plates with upright sides, such as the Aurene ones, be platters?
I don't tend to use that word for anything. I just call the plates chargers, unless they're Tricorns or Verdalas.

That looks like what we know to be Eric Dobson's writing.
Can we see the chalice, please?
