Whitefriars Glass: Post-1960 - Page 9 Empty Whitefriars Peacock?

Post by acolleyuk May 6th 2023, 5:07 pm

Happened to find this lurking in a cabinet in a junk shop today. I originally thought it was Mdina or Venetian glass but have drawn a blank trying to find anything.

The ground and polished pontil reminded me of Whitefriars and it seems the Peacock range is visually pretty close.

There’s no signature, for the money it was a no-brainer and I wondered if anyone might be able to identify it.

Thanks in advance for any help

I think it is Whitefrirars Peacock by Peter Wheeler (1969). Although this shape is
not in the pic in the book, it is shown as "S12" in another pic from the
"orange striped studio" range, also by Peter Wheeler, and done at the same time .

Thank you Naomi and Denby.
There’s not a huge amount of information on the Whitefriars Studio Range. That said, I did come across Peter Wheeler and found reference to some generic models, the inference being the Studio Range, in three designs including Peacock, was applied to the standard models. S12 as you say would fit with this design and it stands 7” tall which would also match.
It’s certainly an interesting piece with the colours seldom appearing the same twice and some wonderful inclusions and complexity.
