A most unusual shaped vase from my collection. I would suggest there was a strong African influence to this design. In his early years John Adams had worked in Natal- it seems possible the design dates from this period. The vase measures 14" in height.
It has the impressed Poole England mark and the stencilled mark 'pastel grey'.
The tall bottle vase behind appears to be in a trial glaze. It is brown with a black speckle. It bears the Poole mark from 1952-55 and an impressed 694. It may well have come from the Studio factory at Poole.
