Geoff - I think you mis-read my post. Victor and Errol are clearly visible and yes I did notice they are different shades- it is Herman I don't see.

2001 is mid range so could easily have gone into production. Does it have Andrews mark on it? I suggest you contact him and enquire about it, if it's one of his - or he might still know even if it isn't.

A vase from 1998. It isn't marked as 'Trial', but I don't think it actually went into production. I have two copies of this, the other one was photographed for the Collect It magazine - so is a star.


African Sunrise vase


And finally a wonderful Gorilla Trial vase.

I haven't - will take a look in a moment.
However, thankfully I managed to get one when they first came out - take a look at my first post on page 3, 3rd shelf down on the right.
they almost instantly sold out, but when I went to their 1st open day in 1998, I met their main sales guy (sorry I've forgot his name), who gave me a list of the shops who took some. After a lot of phone calls, I found a shop that would probably have a spare. They eventually did get a second one and I drove all the way over to Bath to collect it.

I have bought very few items off auction (probably 5 or 6), as I joined the collectors club in the first year and went to the open days for several years - so most of my collection came from the shop, or their collectors club auctions.

The vase looks quite nice - I googled it Innocent

That is almost cettainly a typo and should be Paul Adamiec. He designed the Lodore Falls and Derwent Water ranges from the 2003 Catalogue.

In 2004 he designed the range Caledonian Sunset (limited Ed 25).

I'll look through the newsletters later and see if anything more is said about him.

May or may not be the same person, but there is a Paul Adamiec listed as a freelance artist working in Staffordshire http://pauladamiecartworks.com/

Hi to you all, just heard a story perhaps you can all let me know your thoughts , in the old cobridge  factory shop/showroom there was a massive set of tiles (as i never went to the shop i have never seen it) various people  say it was fantastic,  and was on the wall above the till,the story is it has been sold to a very rich oversees collector, just seems a shame it has ended up oversees and probably will never come back,or is it me just been old fashioned,wonder how much it went for ,and if stoke on trent museam could have bid on it take care all my friends Geoff
