Claricey in form and decoration and yet not Clarice Cliff

Clarice Cliff shape 370 was a globe vase which is quite sought-after by Cliffies.  Autumn Leaves was a later pattern that was a sub-cliff/Wilkinson decoration which crops up on some of the later Cliff designed shapes. This is neither: It is quite fun though. The overglaze enamels are thick and the orange is very thick. The numbering on the bottom means nothing to me. Does it ring any bells out there?

I think I had a Wade heath with a very similar body. That one had gold sponged highlights around the opening. If its not a body design used across many makers (common) then Wade heath could be a good place to look for a match.

From what one can judge from a picture (notice the large caveat!) the quality the clay used does not look that brilliant and the design slightly generic. Reminds me of Brenteigh pottery and the like.

Thanks guys. The quality is better than Brentleigh etc. from my experience - I could be wrong - but I will probably start with Wade Heath. I'll let you know
