This is a very unusual piece of pottery that was made in the 1960s or 1970s in England - as annotated on the base.
The pottery has been giving the name: KAGAWARE. It also has a marker's mark or pottery mark: M.H
I have been unable to find any further information about this pot, I have recently seen another similar one go through an auction which was also with the same twin-handles but taller and slimmer. Perhaps not many were made or survived.
The exterior of the pot has a strange mottled and textured matt glaze. Perhaps to look like Raku fired pieces. The shapes and textures remind me a little of West German pots - perhaps this was an English pottery trying to emulate them.
So a rarer piece of mid-century British Art Pottery - listed here at a fair price - given its rarity. The shape is quite stunning and I have had this on display at home now for many years.
If anyone has anything to add - I would certainly be interested in knowing the background to this strange pot.
Dimensions: Height is 8 inches. The diameter at the widest point is 8 1/2. Handle to handle is 8 1/4 inches.
Unpacked the vase is 1.5 kg so it will have to be sent to you with Parcelforce48 in the UK. This will cost £10.
