Here's the last of the vases I picked up over the weekend. A small 8" octagonal form, very Greek revival in style. The marbled glaze is pale green and grey. There is one glaze miss at the shoulder but no other damage. It has the number 78 stamped in the bottom and a circular ink stamp that says "Made in England" although it's a bit smeared. I haven't been able to find anything online. The glaze looks like a type Burley Winter used as well as McCoy but those are not English companies. So a bit of a mystery here. Any thoughts? -Mike-
NOTE : Been looking around and this piece looks like it could be from the Beswick pottery company. They were best known for their series of Beatrix Potter characters. The company was sold to Royal Doulton in 1969.
