    Discovered this in a once grand but now decaying country town on my way to the Man From Snowy River Festival (its a bit iconic and worth googling. If you’re not an Aussie google the poem too, its part of our national identity).
    This flask is a nice reminder that many of our country towns were once very prosperous and thriving centres rivalling our capital cities.
    It reminds me of John Northwood examples but I’ve not found any marks. I’m still chasing leads via internet to definitively identify.

      Looks very much like Wedgewood inspired.
