Uncatalogued Rare Experimental Whitefriars Design Trial Studio Range Vase by Peter Wheeler, designed by Geoffrey Baxter.
A stunning design of copper chloride on a greenish overlay in the style of Old Gold from the Studio Range in an uncatalogued shape.
This Vase is very rare, probably one of a kind, and a very special piece designed by Geoffrey Baxter.
Made by Peter Wheeler with copper chloride on a green and opal overlay, this is an exceptional piece of whitefriars studio glass.
Produced as a unique "special" at the request of Geoffrey Baxter in the late 1960's, this was made in the 9579 pattern shape from the soda range, which was never repeated or seen as a studio range piece other than this example.
Bought from the private Collection of Earnest Miller, father of Stuart Miller (Whitefriars Assistant to the Chief of Design Geoffrey Baxter) along with a number of other trial pieces, friggers and one-off Experimental Pieces of Whitefriars Glass.
Stuarts father Earnest took a keen interest in Stuarts work and amassed a large collection of rare and experimental pieces which Geoffrey Baxter would give to Stuart from his office or the design department at Whitefriars, to take home to his father to add to his collection.
This would have been part of a design trial for the studio range by Peter Wheeler that was never put into production, a real gem amongst whitefriars glass.
A superb and very rare design which adds effortless style to any setting.
Very good condition - no chips, cracks or restoration, the usual base wear from movement / placement as would be expected to commensurate the age.
Measuring just under 7 inches tall.
