Hello. We like to collect well-designed vintage pottery (and lots of other stuff) from the 1950s,
'60s and '70s. Here are some pictures and info of a selection of the things we've found.

Troika cylinder vase by Linda Hazel.

Photographing this vase recently, made me realise how many vases in the Potshots collection have straight sides. Perhaps it's because to my eye, simple cylinders have a nice solid feel to them.

This particular cylinder-shaped vase is by Troika. It has a nicely painted design that features creamy white circles with thin bands of dark orange and blue. This makes the round shapes look almost like the planet Saturn. Like a lot of Troika pottery, the vase also has a lovely feel with its outer matt finnish and pitted texture.

The base has the monogram LH, indicating that it was painted by Linda Hazel, probably around 1972. I managed to trace the painter's mark through the excellent Digital Museum of Cornish Ceramics
