Is there a signature anywhere, possibly in the tubelining? Those prices also seem OTT! Look around the net, there is some nice Forester stuff but nothing like those prices

Ok, my excuse is that Im sick as a dog at the moment. And head spinning and all congested, I still cant resist coming on here as soon as I get out of bed..

Now..what is the tubelining? And I'll take a look.

And I do think this one is much older too. I dont understand why it isnt called the same as the ones with the heads on ebay. Although mine has a slightly different look about it. And as for the prices, way OTT but it was exciting to see for 5 mins. Smiley

From my ferreting about it seems that Forester gave all their ranges names, but that's not to say that they didn't reuse certain design elements, like your lady, in different ranges. Why waste a good idea if you can reuse it

Tubelining: The same thing you do when you decorate a cake using a funnel.  Grin

Okay I went over it with a torch and a magnifying glass. Nothing.

I think the big blue V may be something.

And, much as I love this vase, it was really sloppily painted. The paint goes outside the lines a lot. And there is even one leaf part on it that they forgot to paint! Maybe it was a tester. Or maybe the A something Richmond WAS the painter?

OK, so not R/A Dean who is known to have been a decorator about the turn of the century and who signed stuff. Glaze is funny stuff and it's really hard to make it stay where you want it. This piece is probably a transitional piece for the company when the skills weren't  quite there.
