Ice blue vase - ID help please

Post by lindylou08 on February 24th 2013, 1:45 pm

Hi
This small ( 4.25 inches high) vase looks clear in some lights , in others a lovely ice blue.

It has undulations in the thickness of the wall.
A really simple piece , but lovely IMHO.

Could it be Whitefriars ? - it does appear to have a ground and polished pontil. I do have an image of the base, not brilliant, but if it helps I could post it

Thanks for looking

Looks like Whitefriars model 9392 in Sapphire Blue.

Thanks for that Nic, but having bought up an image of 9392 on the Whitefriars site I'm not so sure.
Although mine could be described as being 'lobed' it only has 4 fairly undefined lobes

Whitefriars' quality control wasn't always amazing - I've had, in the past, WF vases that were supposed to be lobed or optic-ribbed that had barely a ripple to them.

Just dug out some old photos of a WF vase that should have had quite pronounced lobes, but they were reduced to being just vaguely thicker bits in the vase wall...
