The spice vase is from the textured range that the Cornish Troika pottery made. The Spice vase has a square textured base and a smooth glazed round top – this example has a light coloured base and blue glazed top.
It has been decorated by Alison Brigden who worked for the pottery from the late 1970’s until 1983. She was actually a senior decorator from 1981. All four sides have an abstract design with one side being decorated with a crucifixion motif, making it an unusually patterned Troika vase.
