There are many, many Optic ribbed vases from a variety of different manufacturers and are often misdescribed.   They come in many shapes and forms, but to my eyes the Whitefriars is quite distinctive, having fewer and more spaced apart ribs and a "softer" appearance, than many of the look-a-likes.

Here are some look-a- likes, mostly Scandinavian in origin.

Above is another Scandinavian Optic ribed vase next to an original Whitefriars on the right Pattern Number 9094.
