Bob’s big trea­sure hunt!

This

gor­geous vi­brant vase was a quid in a char­ity shop. I re­ally liked it so I snapped it up. It has the word White­fri­ars on the base. Do you reckon my £1 was money well spent? Jan Bell, North Lon­don

The White­fri­ars Glass fac­tory dates from 1834 to 1980 and there’s been a re­vival of in­ter­est in its wares, es­pe­cially iconic, brightly coloured 1960s pieces, like this one by Ge­of­frey Bax­ter. Your vase isn’t the ‘Drunken Brick­layer’ or ‘Banjo’ (his most fa­mous de­signs), but it is from this era. You’ve bagged a bar­gain, Jan – your vase should be worth around £50 at an ap­pro­pri­ate auc­tion!
