Country of Origin:


Offered for sale here is an extremely rare Whitefriars vase by Geoffrey Baxter. Known as the Rocket vase, this piece is one of the rarest of Baxter’s entire textured range being made for a short period from 1974, as pattern number 9825. Incredibly, this example may well be unique having been made in the non standard colour of “Antique Blue” – a colour which was being used at the time for the production of Toby jugs! I have included a picture of the vase next to a standard kingfisher blue version. Whether this was made on commission or simply as an experiment is anyone’s guess.  It is a large, heavy piece standing 12” tall (as per the catalogued size) and weighing 2133g. The texturing is deep, and the colour really glows (like sky blue but darker)

The vase is in superb condition with no chips, cracks,fleabites or staining and minimal wear to the base.

Ten day auction with a low start and no reserve - happy bidding!
