Wedgwood Ribbed Vase
This ridged moonstone glaze vase dates from 1970; the Wedgwood marking system tells us that it was made in February of that year.
These pieces were made in both the creamy white moonstone glaze and also the black ravenstone glaze. The basic shape of vases such as these was popularised by Constance Spry in the pieces that were made at Fulham Pottery. Her influence on the world of floristry meant that the basic oval shape remained popular. They look particularly good on a mantelpiece.
This vase has no chips or cracks but does have two patches to the foot where it would appear that at some point patches of varnish, or similar, have inadvertently made contact with the vase. They are however both on the same side so that side of the vase could be turned to face the wall!
depth (front to back): 11cm
