“ Brand: Wilko / Type: Vase „
I was in Wilkinsons recently and given that I hadn't been for ages I was really impressed with the range of goods and have since returned many times. A friend who I was with had just moved house and expressed aliking for this vase, so I returned to buy it as part of the moving in basket of goodies.
The product is a large bottle shaped vase in a deep purple colour, although not an all over the same purple colour, but rather with some variations in the colour which adds interest. In different lights the colours do vary but basically it is slightly lighter at the top of the bottle and darkens to a very dark purple with lines going across the bottle towards the bottom.
It is narrow at the top and so would really hold only a couple of flowers or some twig style things, which always look trendy when I see them elsewhere but which I just cant "do". The bottom is rounded but not like a sphere- its more rounded at the sides with the back and front being flatter.
Care of the vase...
It is heavy and care should be taken when placing on polished, painted or synthetic surfaces; probably best placed on a mat to avoid scratches although the base is nice and smooth. There is not information about cleaning and taking care of the vase but it has apparently been washed with warm soapy water and is fine; I wouldn't necessarily wash the inside unless there is something in there as it would be difficult to dry the inside of the bottle
For anyone needing to know the size- it is quite big:
Depth: 9cm Height: 33.5cm
Price and Availability...
The vase is available online at www.wilkinsnplus.com and instore and costs £13.
this is a modern design vase and whilst not exactly practical is attractive and nice and sturdy, so not easy to knock over. Reasonably priced and good quality, the gift was well received!
