Beswick Vase

Post by Reminder234 on September 1st 2013, 4:06 am

Hi. I am new to this so I hope I have posted this correctly.
I am wanting some information about this vase I stumbled upon recently. I bought it at an auction ($2 NZ) as I really liked the shape. It has crazing (I think this is the correct term) over most of it. But it is not chipped. I was really just wanting to know if it is worth anything in the condition it is in.
Thanks

these vases are far less common in NZ so they may be worth a few dollars, there is a NZ pottery forum set up by one of our members

Crazing is pretty common for vases of that age, so I wouldn't worry too much about it. As for value, I find it's best to check out similar items on ebay's completed listings pages as that will give you a good idea of what collectors are paying for such pieces rather than just what sellers are asking, as often sellers will overprice their items which remain unsold but it gives buyers the wrong idea about what their own items are worth.

There is already a Beswick section and I've posted this vase before:

I think the shape is by Colin Melbourne, but can't confirm it right now...

Shape no.1389, but the pattern was still being registered so there's no pattern number. One of this shape but different pattern sold recently on ebay UK for 15, which is about the going rate (plus or minus 5) in the antiques fairs round here.
