This is a very stylish vintage studio pottery vase with a rough finish, matt charcoal glaze - there are random abstract (almost Japanese inspired) splashes of thick turquoise lave glaze around the side - most confined to the front - and the interior of the vase is coated with a shiny thick matching crackle glaze.
The rim at the top is nice and parallel (the photos make it look a little squint - but it is perfectly flush).
It the largest of my three GS art pottery vases that I have listed in my Iconic Edinburgh online Shop.
This one is 11 inches in height - and with a diameter at the widest of about 5 inches.
Marked with an impressed stamp, as shown - GS. I think that this is the mark used by the pottery Gel Simon who was based at her own studio called the Walton on Thames Pottery, 41 Ashley Road in Surrey.
It is a very fine and unique piece of mid-century British studio pottery - and looks wonderful on display in a room with Scandi-modern furniture.
A fair price for a "one-off" piece of mid 20th century Art Pottery - I have another three lovely pieces by this artist for sale in my Iconic Edinburgh online shop.
