Rare & Unusual Troika St Ives Pottery Rectangular Vase

If you’re looking for a nice piece of Troika ware from the St. Ives period then take a look at our Troika Pottery section as we have just added a superb Troika St Ives Rectangular vase with a really unusual design.

This Troika vase is called a rectangular vase and belongs to the textured range that the pottery produced. It has the earlier Troika St Ives pottery mark indicating it is an early vase made when the pottery was based in St. Ives (1960-1970). This particular example has been decorated by Honor Curtis who worked at the pottery from 1968 until 1973. She used the mark on this vase from 1969 onwards so we can date this vase to c1969-1970.

It has been decorated with a brown base with the decoration on some sides being picked out in creams, deep browns and whites with part-glazed sections. On one side it has the Temple pattern, which is very similar to the Troika Taj Mahal pattern, and on another side it has an abstract face design picked out in brown and white glaze.

    I have a piece of troika from the 50’s or 60’s, but it has some slight damage. I think it is called a double vase and it has a small repair where a piece broke off near the base, but has been stuck back on. Can you tell me if this will affect it’s value?

    I have a piece of troika a brown & biege chimey pot or spice vase 9 inches in height.
    The base has been signed TROIKA CORNWALL and below that with two E’s one reversed.
    It has a little blue felt tip on the base where my young daughter tried her hand!other than that it is perfect.
    Will that affect value and can you give an approximate value?
    It was purchased in 1976/77 either St Ives or Looe.
