~RED, RED STRAIGHT FROM THE MOULD and FLARED~
This is FINE RIB Flared Squatty Vase in a “Red All The Way” as it came from the mould, but, Flared.
Sheffield bought the Large Standard FINE RIB mould from George Fenton as they were going out-of-business. He had some Vases made, so, I have some for sell here on the web. This vase is as it came from the mould with the top Flared…but, not Swung. THERE ARE NO KNOWN ITEMS made by Fenton in this pattern STRAIGHT FROM THE MOULD that are not Swung.
The tops were all hand shaped, so they are indeed Whimseys…yes, while some are similar, they are different, either via the shape or the iridescence. This has the top flared very slightly. None are exactly the same.
You do not have to ask if it is Red, all you need do is look at it….It is RED. The iridescence is mainly blue, magenta, gold, yellow & green colors. The colors vary with the lighting…but all are nicely iridized. It is signed SSS in the base for Scott & Suzanne Sheffield.
