Description

Beautiful highly collectible brass vase produced by the Fairthorne Studios when they were located in Toronto back in the 1980s. They have since relocated to St. Marys, Ontario and produce a totally different line of product. None so beautiful as their original line. They have gone more the utilitarian route.

I found only one mention of a Fairthorne vase on line. A rather plain one. This vase I have listed is a beauty. It weighs 235.5 grams - just over 1/2 lb.   It measures approximately 6" tall x 2 3/8" x 1 3/4" I contacted Fairthorne Studios and spoke to Gayle Fairthorne who confirmed that was her signature on the vase. It's a little hard to read but is marked Gayle Fairthorne Studios /83 Canada.

The vase is in very good used vintage condition, especially for its age. The bottom has a leather like material protection and an insert. Gayle suggested that I use a non-abrasive metal polish on the vase and I did. It can still use a little more but I like it as it is. It has a very light patina in the form of tiny scratches and tarnish marks and it's BEAUTIFUL !
