    This set is on the front of my mantelpiece in the centre of the "hoard".
    The ground(s) is (are) uv-reactive and ribbed with a rod scar on base from the tooling of the rim.
    It is small and perfectly-formed at 15.5cm tall.

      Awesome grouping Ian
    6. Michelleb007 Michelleb007, 7 years ago
      Ian, a lovely grouping! I believe your little hyacinth-shaped vase is actually a crocus-forcing vase. They are just about the same shape, but very small, just like crocus bulbs. http://www.kennemerend.nl/other.html I really like the decor, too! :)
    7. IanBrighton IanBrighton, 7 years ago
      The link certainly supports that supposition, but I can't imagine using these in that way - or my Rindskopf hyacinth vase!
    8. Lustrousstone Lustrousstone, 6 years ago
      It's neither a hyacinth vase nor a crocus vase; you'd never get a hyacinth in and it's too big at the top for a crocus. The Rindskopf "hyacinth" vases aren't bulb vases either. I edited The Curious History of the Bulb Vase by one of the leading experts on bulb vases Patricia Coccoris

      Thanks for the comment. Maybe the shape was informed by bulb-forcing?
    10. Lustrousstone Lustrousstone, 6 years ago
      Bulb vases have to fit bulbs and their roots, so yes their shapes are informed by bulb forcing, but this vase and the Rindskopf ones were not made as such and are totally unsuitable for use as such, though other posy vases not made for bulbs may be suitable for forcing bulbs on water.

      I wouldn't want to try anyhow! Thanks for the comments and info.
