This is an authentic and rare, Whitefriars, meadow green, drunken bricklayer vase, designed by the late great Geoffrey Baxter, for his textured range, pattern number 9673.

The original textured moulds were produced by Geoffrey Baxter, in his spare time, and were made from objects including bark and nails. The drunken bricklayer vases were made between 1966-1973. Meadow green is certainly one of the rarer and most sought-after of all the produced drunken bricklayer vases.

This stunning meadow green drunken bricklayer vase is in superb condition, no chips, dinks, scratches, or restoration, does have some very tiny light surface scratches to the base, which could be polished out if required, but this is commensurate with it's 43 years of age, nothing unusual. 

Dimensions as follows .....

Height: 8.25 inches or 22 cm

Depth: 2.5 inches or 6 cm

Width: 3 inches or 7.5 cm

Weight: 2lb 4 oz or 1.03 kg grams

This vase does have the odd very tiny manufacturing firing bubble, small bubbles and inclusions/imperfections are all part and parcel of Whitefriars hand made glass and are not considered defects or flaws. In fact I'd be more concerned if it didn't have any bubbles, most genuine honest pieces of Whitefriars glass do have some tiny bubbles.

The colour is a beautiful crystal clear deep meadow green as you can see from the photos.

I've took a picture of the pontil to show it's authenticity, also the dot formation and weight is another way of detecting authenticity, there are other ways as well, UV test. This vase even has its original Whitefriars paper label still on it !!!!

If you’re intending to purchase a piece of Whitefriars glass, please be careful, because there are fakes about. These pieces of Whitefriars glass have become so very collectable and sought-after (hence the fakes).

An antique that's appreciating in value, today’s investment will become tomorrow’s heirloom, (better than keeping your money in the bank).

Again let me reiterate, 100% genuine, also I don't think my photos are doing this vase true justice.

This beautiful meadow green drunken bricklayer vase will be sent out recorded, special delivery with insurance.
