A second opinion

Yesterday Mr A and I went for an afternoon stroll and came across this very unusual Crown Devon leaping stag wall vase. I’m not sure if my surreptitious photos have captured the shape at all well – it’s kind of a double trumpet design with a flat back. I can’t find the exact item online so I’m not sure about the price they’ve put on it, but it’s part of the 1950s Stockholm design that I remembered from a Cold Comfort Crafts blog post last year.

It’s got the same beautiful red on the inside. My question for you is: should I buy it?

    Yes you should – it looks Christmassy to me and would be lovely filled with holly and red flowers on the wall! It is unusual, I know nothing about antiques but the price seems reasonable!

    My recommendation is…if it goes with your decor and if you like it…then buy it.

    Ooh it is a bit of an odd one isn’t it! In the tiny bit of research I did i did not come across any wall vases, so would assume it is pretty rare. The Crown Devon Stockholm really seems to hold its value so if you change your mind there will definitely be a collector out there to take it off your hands! Go for it.

      Thanks Sasha. Hopefully it’s still there when I go back next weekend…
