Troika Pottery Coffin Vases For Sale

If you’re looking for a Troika Pottery vase then why not take a look at the collectable Troika Pottery Coffin vases we currently have for sale (pictured below)?

The Troika Pottery started out in St Ives in Cornwall in 1963 and over the 20 years it remained open produced a wide range of art pottery from wall plaques, to smooth glazed decorative pieces to textured and rugged looking pottery pieces.

The Troika Coffin vase belongs to the textured range that the pottery produced and can be found with many different abstract patterns in a variety of colours.

The Coffin vase on the left has been decorated by Beverley Ellwood who started working at the Cornish pottery during the 1970s. The Coffin vase on the right was decorated by the collectable Teo Bernatowitz who only worked at the pottery for a short time around 1974. Both Coffin vases have the Troika Pottery black painted pottery mark to their base and are lovely examples from such a well-known and collectable pottery.

Troika Pottery – Coffin or Slab vase? Anne Jones or Alison Brigden?

Troika Pottery Coffin Vase

We have just added two new Troika pottery vases to our site – a Troika Coffin vase and a Troika Slab vase. Which do you prefer?!

Troika Pottery Slab Vase

Originally starting out in the picturesque town of St. Ives in Cornwall and later moving to new premises at Newlyn, Troika pottery pieces come in many shapes and sizes. Both the Coffin vase and the Slab vase belong to what is known as the textured range produced by the pottery until it closed in 1983.

These two examples are both rather striking examples with vivid colour decorations and interesting pattern designs. They are both also fully marked to the base with the black painted Troika pottery mark and each have a decorator’s mark. The Coffin vase has been decorated by Anne Jones – Anne only worked at the pottery for a short time from 1976 to 1977 and she was part-time at that as well! The Slab vase has been decorated rather spendidly by Alison Bridgen. The blue base of this vase really brings out the unusual patterns on both sides.

Don’t forget, all our Troika pottery prices DO include UK postage and packaging by Royal Mail Special Delivery – so it’s guaranteed next day delivery by 1pm if you’re in need of an urgent purchase!

Troika Coffins Gone Mad on eBay

I’ve noticed several times recently that the odd Troika pottery coffin vase appears to have gone sky high recently on eBay. There appears to be nothing special about these vases (regardless of how they describe them) as they are all just standard Coffin vases from the Newlyn period.

At present, you might normally see a Troika coffin retail for between £140-£170 depending on it’s design, decorator and condition. As I write this one’s already at £255 with 3 hours to go.

In the past I’ve seem them go for over £400, which is utter madness.
