Large Ribbed Ravenstone Wedgwood Vase
This ravenstone ribbed Wedgwood vase is date stamped for October 1957 which is fairly early for the production of these pieces. The shape came in at least 2 sizes and this example is of the larger size. The simple but elegant shape and spare detail lends the vase an elegance and versatility that means it can sit all manner of interiors and looks elegant with or without flowers.
I have used some scrunched up large gauge chicken wire to hold the flowers in this arrangement, if you don’t use this or something similar the flowers and foliage have a habit of falling to one side of the vase.
In good condition with no chips or cracks but with a water mark on the inside of the vase – you can see this in the photograph that shows the vase interior.
Depth (front to back): 11cm
