Cash in the attic: Conrah metalware

Conrah vases, candleholders and bowls were designed by Ronald Hughes in 1967 and produced in Wales during the seventies.

Their futuristic look make them typical of the lates '60s and '70s

Anodised aluminium cut by machine with a pattern was expensive and challenging to produce meaning that these pieces were not inexpensive. Their futuristic and funky look, bright colours and sparkling faceted-patterns make them typical of the late '60s and '70s.

Interest has begun to rise over the past three years. As demand has increased, prices have risen. Buy while you can and group together for visual impact. This large 1970s green (rare colour) vase (25.5cm or 10in high) is valued at £100 to £150.
