    I love the blue of this bud vase from Whitefriars, 1960s.
    Nice wide base to handle the height of the neck and a flower without a disaster happening.

    I have an Alsterfors vase quite similar to this which I will post in comparison (sometime!)

    Height 25cm (10in)

    The little hyacinth vase is also Whitefriars about the same era.
    Colour is called Arctic Blue - lovely petite thing!

    Height 6cm (1.5in)

    I apologise to any Whitefriar's officiants. I know you are out there and questioning why I don't know model numbers, and proper dates and colours!
    Here's the story. I picked up a few pieces of WF and got interested, joined a few groups. Those groups made recent events here look like a playground spat - the intensity and vitriol overcame any desire I had to really get into Whitefriars glass. The end.
