Crown Devon Stylised Globe Vase - c. 1950's


Crown Devon Stylised Globe Vase - c. 1950'sThis unusual stylised globe-shaped vase by Crown Devon was made in the 1950's and has the distinctive "space-age" design reminiscent of that era. It has a grey outer glaze and a pink inner glaze, with a gilded footed base and gilding to the top edge of the vase. Apart from some very slight and barely noticeable rubbing to the gilding at the top of the vase, it is in excellent condition. This super, decorative vase is very much in vogue for the modern home decorator, as well as being a brilliant retro collectable.

Whitefriars-Style Kingfisher Blue Tall Bark Effect Textured Glass Vase - c. 1960's - 1970's


Whitefriars-Style Kingfisher Blue Tall Bark Effect Textured Glass Vase - c. 1960's - 1970'sThis stunning, tall bark effect textured vase made from Kingfisher blue glass has been made in the style of Whitefriars glass, probably produced by A. Jones & Co. and manufactured in Sweden. When the vase is displayed, there is little to choose between this design and one made by Whitefriars, although the moulding technique is not as refined as Whitefriars and, although the vase is heavy, it does not have the heavy clear glass base peculiar to Whitefriars vases. However, as a copy it passes very well as a display piece and makes an excellent home decorator's item. It is in mint condition.  SOLD  Measurements: 30.5cm (12 Condition: Quantity:One Price:49.99 Status:SOLD Additional Images:Turquoise Bark Vase Top Turquoise Bark Vase Base



Sklo Union Rudolph Schrotter Bullet-Shaped Blue Glass Vase - c. 1940's


Sklo Union Rudolph Schrotter Bullet-Shaped Blue Glass Vase - c. 1940'sThis unusual blue glass vase was designed in 1940 by Rudolf Schrotter for the Rudolfova Glassworks based in Teplice, Czechoslovakia. It is moulded on four sides into oval "lense" shapes which give an interesting optical effect. The machine cut base has a "bird bath" like depression and is typical of the pressed glass produced by these factories at this time. There is just one small chip to the outside of the base, measuring approximately .5cm across, and another minute fleabite next to it, measuring approx. 2mm across. These very minor faults cannot be seen when the vase is displayed. This vase is in otherwise excellent condition and makes a fascinating display piece, especially when backlit.  SOLD  Measurements:20.5cm (8in) Condition:A couple of minor faults at base, otherwise in excellent condition Quantity:One Price:12.99 Status:SOLD Additional Images:Blue Bullet Vase - Top Blue Bullet Vase - Base
