Just for a show, a self awarded Christmas present.
Found in nice original condition, not sure if its ever been in a washing up bowl in its life.
Tried to convince myself it was pewter. After reading the Peter mc Carthy post on this site, I think its indigo.
All the best for 2017 to all the members on this site.

Nice find Tim :). If it were pewter I'd be insanely jealous. Merry Christmas mate :).

Very indigo, one of the nicest colours for this vase and it's got all it's labels! Don't know why but they are such an appealing vase despite/because of their relatively plain design. Love em!

Also gives me the slightest excuse to post mine again....
