    Beswick Largest Vase, Shape 1064 Over 11 1/2 Inch Jug, Cobalt Blue, Painted & Golt Highlights. Designed by James Hayward in 1946.

    Beswick made two groups of palm vases. The first group were shapes 1063 to 1074 which were 12 shapes, there were 6 additional shapes in group two.
    The designer for this jug 1064 was James Hayward in 1946, issued 1947. Stopped production by 1963. From talking to original buyers over the years I found out a lot of them were sold in good Jewellery stores over the years. Some of the owners got them for their weddings. Most were sold in England then Canada then Australia also. There were not many sold or imported to the U.S. In the 1950's if these were sold and bought as wedding presents - it would have been a very good one. Sometimes in the 50's a lot of ceramic wedding presents were just salt and peppers made in Japan. A lot of people received low value wedding presents, but this one would have been a high end present.

    These are delicate and beautiful. The porcelain is very thin, especially when viewed from the top vase opening.

    This is the largest and most beautiful vase about 11 inches to 11 1/2 with some shrink to some, this one close to 12 inches. Received from England in 4th week of January, 2017.

      De nada Phil, I can see from your collection that you really love Beswick... they are uncommon here in Virginia, and I must add quite tranquil. I feel almost as if I'm back on vacation in Cancun ;-) If I ever run across one, I will try to snag it!

      Did they make them in dark red too? I thought I saw a smaller one like this on our local market.
    13. PhilDMorris PhilDMorris, 5 years ago
      Yes AdeleC, in reds they made them in a bright glossy red only, usually the base colour was pretty consistent on the glossy ones, the matte finishes varied much more. You probably would see them more often since you are in the UK.

      I will have a closer look at it next time I pass by!
