Whitefriars Glass, as many collectors are starting to realise, had a wealth of beautiful and well-crafted designs under their belt before the now (over-)familiar Geoffrey Baxter 'textured' range came out in the mid/late 1960s.

This is one of my favourite WF pieces in my collection - a quite rare 13" 8266 Dark Blue Tinted & Threaded on Sea Green bowl, designed by Barnaby Powell in 1930.

It caught my eye at an antiques fair so much that I decided to forsake a few pieces of dirt-cheap Holmegaard and some under-priced early Baxter pieces to be able to afford it.

But well worth it, I think.
