Royal College of Arts
Studio Vase
Peter Wheeler, c.1967


Exceptionally scarce vase by Peter Wheeler, dating to between 1964-67 (but probably towards the end of that period), from when he was studying at the RCA, and before his famous  - but brief - time at Whitefriars.

It is of a simple organic gourd-like form in clear soda glass, shot with small bubbles and irregularities, with a single and large appled 'spot' of amber glass to one side. The  vase is especially interesting because of the decoration style of applied and re-fired blobs of colour, which bears an uncanny resemblance to the later 'studio-inspired' range  of vessels designed by Baxter for Whitefriars in 1969 - the same year Wheeler signed on to the WF payroll.

The vase was given by Wheeler as a gift to a friend studying at the RCA with him, from whose daughter we acquired it.

About Us

Messrs. Nicholas Wilson and Ashley Coleman, the constituent parts of Wilson & Coleman, are dedicated - addicted - to finding wonderful vintage and contemporary interior design  objects and works of decorative art from around the world.

We shun the ease of buying from dull and predictable wholesalers and "antiques warehouses", and everything we acquire has been individually sourced, often in very limited runs.  This means that although we present mostly 20th and 21st Century European objects of vertu we never know exactly what we'll next discover on our travels.

We do know, however, that it will never be boring.

Selecting items individually also means that there will always be a consistent level of taste, quality and coherence that runs throughout our collections. We would never present  anything that we would not absolutely love to own ourselves.
