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!

Add Some Spice To Your Troika Collection

Our site has just been updated with a new piece of Troika pottery – a superb blue Troika Spice vase with white glazed top.

Troika Spice Vase

This spice vase has a a white glazed top and has been decorated with a deep blue base on all four sides – two sides being picked out with white decoration.

Spice vases are part of the textured range developed by the Troika pottery. They stand approximately 15cm tall and have a solid square base – making them easy to display with no worries of them toppling over (unlike the small wheel vases!). They were produced with different designs in different colourways, some have white glazed tops (like this one), others have deep blue or a brown tops.

This particular Spice vase has been decorated by Louise Jinks (later Louise McClary). Louise began working at the Troika pottery in Newlyn Cornwall in 1976. Progressing well she then became a senior decorator in 1979, finally leaving the pottery in 1981.

This is a lovely example of a spice vase – the contrast of the blue body and white glazed top making it stand out.

Troika Pottery Marmalade Vase – Linda Taylor

We have recently added a new Troika marmalade vase to our Troika pottery page.

Troika Marmalade Vase - Linda Taylor

This marmalade vase has rather an unusual design with the T emblem on one side and a mushroom design on the other! The T design is often collected so that it can be displayed at the front of a collection (T for Troika), so it’s even nicer that it has an unusual pattern on the other side.

This particular marmalade vase has been decorated by Linda Taylor who worked at the pottery until the early 1970s when they were based in Newlyn in Cornwall.

Troika has become hugely collectable over recent years. Only operating for 20 years it was originally founded in 1963 in St. Ives in Cornwall. During it’s time it produced a wide range of decorative items ranging from smooth glazed wares to textured items such as this marmalade vase.
