Faulkner Bronze Cobral Ware vase


A copper and glass vase made by the Faulkner Bronze Company, circa 1903.

The “Cobral Ware” range was made by the Faulkner Bronze Company and patented around 1901/2. They continued to make the range until the Faulkner Bronze Company was reconstituted as Jesson, Birkett & Co in 1904. This piece is fully marked for the Faulkner Bronze Company and has a patent stamp which suggests it was made between 1901 and 1904.

The green irridescent glass was blown into a pierced copper frame. I am led to believe that the glass was blown by Webb’s in Stourbridge.

The vase is marked to the base with “Patent” and “Cobral Ware” as well as “F.B.C”. The Faulkner Bronze Company used a few different makers stamps over the short number of years the firm was in existence.

If you look closely at the image of the Faulkner Bronze Company exhibition stand you can see similar examples on the table.
