Hi Ann

These rare vases are by Thomas Forester, also known as T F & S or PHOENIX CHINA or PHOENIX WARE.

Thomas Forester started out in High Street, Longton, then expanded to Church Street. The Phoenix works were completed in 1879. In the beginning of 1883 Forester took his sons into partnership and the T F & Sons was established.

SO... you get the picture of how old your vases are?

The firm ceased trading in 1959.

Good luck!

Lotus Ware - TF & SL Hand painted
by: Karin

Hi Peter, stumbled upon your page whilst trying to find another Lotus Ware item on the planet. I have a beautiful vase in almost MINT condition & was sure it dates pre 1900 ... found confirmation of the marker OK however everything seems to relate to Phoenix China. Cannot see where i can attach a piccy for your reference

{moderator says:- "pics now added. On the comments sections pics have to be put in by us manually as only the original poster can add pics at the moment - working on a fix for this!, so just send them to peteradmin@theclayartist.com, .....BUT be sure to say the URL address of what page the comment is on, otherwise we might no be able to find it"}.

Sure would be interesting to get a value .. although i wouldn't really part with it. I purchased this about 20 years ago .. since that time & without really looking for confirmation of it's value .. was totally surprised to find a Phoenix & also the number 13 beneath .. which BOTH have a significant signature/imprint on me in life's journey! Any info you can lend is much appreciated.

Kind regards from me in Australia

G'day Karin there!

Thanks for chipping in here. I will add your pics manually to your comments as only the main top submission allows for pics to be uploaded by the visitor unfortunately.

Just email them to me and make sure you tell me they are for the T. Forester Ltd - Phoenix - T F & S comments by Karin, otherwise I am sure to have a senior moment and forget!

peteradmin@theclayartist.com

Let me know if you want anything valued. I send them to an expert which cost a few dollars, but is quite often worth it, especially if you may want to sell sometime.

find out more in the antique & vintage value section

Phoenixware vases NEW
by: V.T Bentley

I have two Phoenixware vases. Flow Blue and Gold Lily design.

They were handed down to me.

I am curious as to their value, and more so if they had a name.

I have seen similar designs named 'Glamis'

Wondering if I can get some help or direction on how to know their true value.

Regards, V.T Bentley
