Bone china vase slip cast from a collection of antique bottles which Rebecca sources from around Ireland. An interest in our native industrial heritage has inspired a range by Rebecca entitled 'Homegrown'. Glazed on both the inside and outside in a choice of three pastel shades, this bottle can hold liquids making it a perfect single stem vase. The textured font reads; J&E Smyth & Co Mineral Water Manufacturers Trim. Each bottle is finished with stripes of gold lustre across the rim, the makers stamp on the bottom and comes with its own recycled card gift box. Other pieces in the collection include the Bangor and the Newry bottle.
Dimensions: Height: 16.5cm x diameter: 4.5cm

The Homegrown Collection was launched April 2017.This range celebrates local historic industry, in which I create moulds from beautiful antique bottles from industries that are no longer in existence. The quirky bottles in millennial pink, white and dusky blue aim to bring a fresh approach to nostalgic bone china - Rebecca
