This is a highly collectable and rare piece of antique Scottish pottery.

It is a sweet little bulbous vase and totally adorable. It is 3 1/2 inches in height with a diameter at the widest point of 3 1/2 inches.

It dates to around the 1920s and is hand-painted with a very attractive pattern of pale lemon-orange fruits (not sure if we have an apple or orange depicted here) and with a sprinkling to black and wine coloured berries - all around the pot.

It is marked to the base Mak Merry in yellow paint.

It is in good antique condition with no damages

It is nice and clean inside.

These pots are getting just so much harder to find - and my price for this old piece of unique Scottish pottery is certainly a fair one.

HISTORY: The MakMerry pottery grew out of the Scottish Women's Rural Institute, which was founded in 1917 in the Scottish town Macmerry by Catherine Blair.

Catherine had previously been an active Suffragist, campaigning for 'Votes for Women' and had a history of promoting female independence and equality. She became involved in the suffragette movement was by writing countless letters to the press about the plight of women.

In 1920 MakMerry was set up as the trading arm of the Institute. Initially, members invested small sums of money and produced food items for sale – but they soon moved into producing fine craftworks as well – one of the crafts was pottery decoration. They hand-painted smaller household items such as plates, shallow bowls, lidded pots and the sweetest teapots – and all these are instantly identifiable and often featured delicate and stylized floral patterns.

I have a couple of other little MakMerry items in my online shop - one has sold already.
