Hi Marie, 'S' in the 1974 catalogue would be sage

not silver.

Hello, Here is a example of the sage.

Or is it this one with the bubbles?

Wrong pattern number James, that's a 9727..........not a 9775

Here's a 9775 in Lilac

They were not catalogued in Silver

My Bad Emmi, I typed in 9775 in the search box and the first one stated a 9775 and I just saw the colour and wasn't paying attention that it was a 9727. That's what I get for reading the search box and not looking. :lol: Thank you for the correction. James.

Thanks Chris for decoding the s for sage, and thanks James for the example picture.  I've not taken a photo of my vase - I hope the link below works.  It's definitely not sage!  It looks grey to me but the grey has an amethyst kind of purple tinge if I look through the thickest part.  Is this silver, or twilight, artic blue or something else?  Any suggestions gladly welcomed.

What Ho! Its Lilac!

Sorry Emmi, I've only just seen your reply as I'd not found page 2 of the thread, durr!  The colour of my vase is a lot less purple than the one in Emmi's example, but maybe that's down to a difference in lighting.  So, you reckon it's lilac, Wolfie.  

Thanks for the info everyone.

Hi Samuel,

Thanks for the comments on the colour - it does look greyish but I can see the purple in the grey now I know what to look for.  Thanks for the link to the colour guide too.  That's so useful - thanks to Emmi for putting it together.  I have the Lesley Jackson book but it's not that easy to find the colour information.  Emmi's list is going to be very helpful.

Thanks also for the links to the glass sales and collections - lovely photo's.

Quote from: "David Fletcher"
As Emmi said, it can't be AQUA! It's cased in clear crystal! Additionally Pattern 9566 was only made until 1973 so it could never be made in Aqua! I really don't see why this causes confusion.

Vidfletch :lol:

There must be a miss print some where. Pattern 9566 was indeed made in aqua flc and the 9566 was made until the closing of the factory in 1980. :lol:

As some posts from the original thread have been deleted, I will explain.  First there is indeed a misprint in the pattern number, should read 9556 which is the beaked vase, and if the photo in the discussion had not been removed then it would be clear.  The beaked vase was the one under discussion and the information correct.

As James says, the 9566 was made in Aqua etc.

Some more colour info by list:

This colour list is intended as a quick reference guide for colours produced by Whitefriars and has been compiled with  help given on the subject by the Museum of London book, the Lesley Jackson book and other information gathered from my own experience and information gleaned from other members of this site.  It is as accurate as I can possibly make it given that some of the older catalogues are not fully available.  The colours listed are those actually shown in the catalogues and there is a summary of the length of production time for some of the colours used . This is a work in progress and any comments made for improving the accuracy will be welcomed.
