Description

A striking Whitefriars (England) art glass vase in a tall slim rectangular shape – an iconic ‘Nailhead’. 
Kingfisher Blue colour – a very striking vibrant zingy deep turquoise Whitefriars colour. 

The vase was designed in the 1960s by Geoffrey Baxter. 
It’s a random indented pattern of dots, resembling round nail heads on two sides, and smooth glass on the other two sides. 
The randomness of the dots (and the colourway) dates this version to apx 1974 to 1976 – it has the later mould pattern with the more precise dots. 
The zingy colour is cased in clear/flint glass.

Very good clean condition.
On very close inspection it has two rim flaws – an inner tiny shell slither and a corner shallow small chip – neither of which show when its on display – see all photos.
Due to the handmade and unique nature of this vase, there are some moulding lines/swirls to the sides. 
Displays well as you can see.

Measures 16.7cm in height, 4.5 x 4.1cm wide – the smaller Nailhead from the later mould.
