Alderney Conical Hurricane Vase

Change size



A closer look at Alderney

Alderney’s our crispest, most modern vase shape. If you’re looking for versatility, it works as a wide-mouthed vase for loose, relaxed arrangements; as a terrarium; or as a hurricane lantern.

Pairing a candle

Alderney’s straight-sided, conical shape maximises the reflections of flickering candlelight. Use it to create atmosphere on a mantelpiece, console table or countertop. The small size works well with our Blyton 7x9cm candle, medium with our Blyton 10x10cm candle, and the large size with our Blyton 10x15cm candle.

As a vase

Alderney only needs three stems to create a modern display. Or fill it with a mass of the same thing like short-stem, hellebores for the small size, or hydrangeas for the large. With a flower-pot shape, it also looks good potted up with a household plant, or used as a terrarium for succulents.

As an ornament

Don’t worry about where you’ll store your vase when it’s not being used. Alderney looks just as good when it’s left empty. Put a pair in different sizes on the top of a sideboard, in a bookcase, or beneath a console table.

The materials

A clear glass vase reflects light in a room, in a similar way to a mirror. And with no colour, it will go with everything in the room. All of our vases have heavy bases, so there’s no risk of large-headed stems.

The making process

This vase is hand blown, so no two are exactly alike. One might be a touch smaller than another; you might see a tiny air bubble trapped in the glass; or a swirl where it expanded as it was blown. It’s all part of the personality of something made by hand.

Need to knows

Our larger vases are heavy. Half-full of water, even heavier. So we recommend arranging your flowers in situ rather than trying to carry the vase when it’s full.

When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.

From our own, white-glove service for delivering larger pieces in the UK and Ireland, to our courier and international partners, rest assured that we’ve done everything we can to make sure your order gets to you on time and in one, perfect piece.

Delivery’s also entirely free if you’re in the UK and spend over £50 (or €100 in Ireland).
