I was just on the phone to Hemara and he said that he has a 395 Dragon vase too.
His has .393. and lV on it as it was the fouth one made.
Tam Mitchell designed the Dragon vase in 1957 and not many of them were made.

He rang to say that my Waka Huia is ready bounce

I also have a dragon vase in brown, .395. always thought it was for bonsai's but it has no hole? Very surprised it was designed in 1957, thought it might have been a 1970's piece, awesome to have all the info here about it!! Well done guys. Polgara.
