We love Vintage Glassware.......

We thought we would share our love of Vintage Glassware with you and couldn´t think of a better example to start with than this beautiful piece of Whitefriars glass by Geoffery Baxter. No longer in operation, the Whitefriars Factory produced arguably the best quality glass ever created in Britain. This great glassware has gained in popularity over the last 10years and has become sought after by collectors across Europe and indeed the world.

This piece has been given the nickname the Mobile Phone Vase due to its unique shape and glass bubbles which resemble the buttons on a mobile phone. The vase was designed in the late 1960s and is from the Whitefriars "Textured" Range. For more info on C20th glassware make sure to check out
