Picotee glazed fish

This fish is from a design attributed to John Adams and modelled by Harry Brown in the early 1930s.  It is sprayed with picotee green and new blue glazes which would have been applied by air brush.  This resulted in the blended effect of the colours.
It is stamped Poole England and marked with model number 334 and the colour reference P4.

I have two other similar fish in my collection, one in magnolia white and the other mushroom.  The other shape fish currently evades the collection.  Like all collectors I have a regret story when I saw one at auction and didn't bid...
