Item details

Vintage from the 1960s


Satin 18 8 stainless steel, Rubbery bases


Height: 18 Centimetres; Width: 2.9 Centimetres

Choice of two available - price is for each one.... (they vary slightly, please let me know which which one you'd like).

A stylish Modernist pair of stainless steel bud vases designed by Robert Welch, Des. RCA., FSIA, for Old Hall (Sheffield, England). Part of the iconic Alveston range from 1964, these were in production from 1964 to 1971*. The Alveston tableware range won a Design Centre Award in 1965, and is now much sought after.

High quality items in a satin/slightly brushed 18/8 stainless steel. Made in England by Old Hall, both are stamped on the angled undersides with 'Designed by R. Welch. Old Hall England. 18/8 Stainless Steel'. Tall and slim elegant design, simple, minimalist. Excellent condition for age/era with a few signs of use/some light marks - but great for over 45 years old. They both maintain their original non-slip bases, but they're slightly different from different batches. They're both around 18cm tall, 2.9cm wide at the lightly flared rim, 5cm wide at the base. They would hold a single statement flower or a few slim stems. Both tested for water-tightness for a short time. They could also be used as a candle holder for a dinner candle.

Black base version - this one is slightly shorter. It has a couple of very small surface marks.
Blue base version - this one has a black stripe at the bottom of the cylinder tube, and the logo is wonky. It has an original quality controller's sticker underneath.

Price includes P&P to the UK, price is each.

This seller usually responds within a few hours.

Items weighing under 2kg total will be posted by 2nd class Royal Mail. If it's a high value item I'll add Signed For. Items weighing over 2kg will be posted by Hermes, and if they are high value I'll add Signed For. I may not be able to post to some areas of the UK, such as the Channel Islands, but I'll give it a good go! I'll try to post within 24 hours (when Post Office opening hours allow).
All postage abroad will be by Royal Mail's International Tracked and Signed service, so will need signing for your end. Please say if you'd prefer just a Tracked service instead. I can't post anything that weighs over 2kg or is larger than a 'small parcel'.
I have specially chosen these items to be of superior quality and condition for their age and era. All my items are vintage (25+ years old) and may naturally have some wear and tear which may not be in the description. I have written everything to the best of my ability, and tried to describe any obvious flaws. The photos also help to show the condition - please view all photos and read the descriptions.
For lower value items I'm happy for you to provide the address and unique code for a UK onward mailing company, but I cannot accept responsibility for any damage or non-delivery beyond the mailing company's address. Once the UK mailing company has safely received the parcel it is no longer my responsibility.
Why buy new? Buy vintage, and help protect the planet. You're rescuing vintage pieces for future generations. Also, please don't bin my packaging - save, re-use and recycle. Thank you.
I use large bubble bubble-wrap with strengthening card and sturdy cardboard boxes. I often double box for safety and I re-use old newspapers to fill any gaps. I have been selling on Etsy for over five years and know and trust my packing. Jewellery is posted in small sturdy cardboard jewellery boxes, in a mailing bag. (Please re-use or recycle any packaging!)
UK free postage is factored into all my prices... I think UK customers like to see an upfront price including postage with no hidden surprises. Sorry I can't offer free post worldwide.
