Troika wannabee?

Post by NaomiM on February 19th 2015, 7:23 pm

Found this today, covered in paint. There was a similar one (shorter) on ebay last year listed as "TROIKA pottery Lamp Base Abstract decoration by Louise Jinks (later McClary)(1976 to 1981)", but it was withdrawn, unsold, presumably because it wasn't Troika.

Has a Purbeck look to it, but it's slipcast, not stoneware.

From an antiques & Collectables warehouse. It had lost it's price but still had the price sticker from the charity shop on it, and so they sold it for that. I might go back, point out their mistake, and get my money back.
