Fitz and Floyd Crane Vase 1984
This vase is called by different names and I do not know which one might be the correct one but, I have read it is called the Nikko Crane vase, Cranes In Flight, and Flying Cranes. The Japanese word Nikko means sunlight and Fitz and Floyd makes dinnerware called Nikko Crane. The Nikko Crane design has the cranes a bit more whimsical than the cranes on the vase, but the colors are the same.
The condition of this piece is totally damage free. No chips, dings, scratches, cracks, stains, repairs, or crazing. Marked well on the bottom with the Fitz and Floyd impressed mark and the year manufactured. I believe this was the only year the crane vase was produced. There is a Japan sticker and it looks as though there was an oval FF sticker at one time.
The molded vase has embossed/raised relief cranes in flight. Each wing feather can be felt. This vase has a wonderful silky and satiny feel to the light gray blue and creamy white glaze and the vase is weighty too at nearly two pounds. The quality is high on this very lovely vase. You won't be disappointed.
The size is 8" Tall X 5" Wide With a 2-3/4" Opening
Fitz and Floyd began as an import company in the early 1960's, founded by Pat Fitzpatrick and Bob Floyd, but soon turned to the design and sale of ceramic gift ware and tabletop products. In the 1970s the reputation of Fitz and Floyd grew with the superior quality of their work. The Fitz and Floyd designs are sometimes whimsical and oft times serene as is this vase I am offering. Fitz and Floyd are still in business today.
Thanks for looking, enjoy your day, and don't let this one get away.
