This vase is illustrated in my book 'Designer British Silver'.
This vase was an experiment with press forming. Constructed from two spun forms joined by a ring (gilded), the decoration was applied with a tool he had made. Only a very few were produced and one was stolen from the British Crafts Council stand at the Javits Centre in New York.
