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!
