Floral sided vase similar to Frank Thrower designs but??

Post by 20th-centuryboy on Sat Apr 20, 2013 10:10 pm

When I bought this I thought it could be a Frank Thrower piece but I now think it could be Scandinavian. Looked around on Ebay and other places but can't seem to find anything similar? Does anyone have any ideas of manufacturer/designer?? Size is approx 95 x 62 x 296mm.

My first thought is frank thrower, Dartington, too.

So are they saying it's a Blenko daisy vase designed by Wayne Husted, design number 6115L ?

Having read all 4 pages seems Blenko was a suggestion then 'dismissed' Mark Hill and Eve Throw said not Dartington. I think the general consensus is 'unknown maker'

There have been several more examples of this vase cropping up in the last few years and the maker is still 'unknown', at least here anyway.

In reality it bears only the most superficial resemblance to Frank Throwers designs for Dartington Glass, even though it is mould blown, floral and grey in colour. FT's designs are well documented and this is likely to be from a contemporary manufacturer in the far east.
