Derby, Sowerby and Inwald
These vases are also known under the name of Pinwheel, although Derby was the Sowerby name. In addition to the vases, a wide range of shapes was produced in the Derby pattern. The marigold vase above is 8 inches tall; the amethyst is 7 inches tall. Sowerby was an English glass manufacturer, but the vases were also produced by the Czechoslovakian maker, Josef Inwald. On the right is a cookie jar in the Sowerby Derby pattern.
