Retro Crown Devon

Post by Adam20 on Tue Dec 20, 2011 2:13 am

Retro Crown Devon vase - moulded with rings and prunts and decorated in brown and black - feels late 60s / 70s. 10" high with green interior.

Anyone seen this design before - know designer?

Thanks Adam

I wondered if it was Colin Melbourne as he worked for Crown Devon - however I'm not sure if designed more than the Memphis range. Also this is not signed by him - the Memphis range is as well as Royal Norfolk Petra ware I have by him.

Any suggestions welcomed.

I bought the piece on eBay Big Ed mentioned - it was very reasonable - delivered yesterday so here is a photo of the two together.

I notice the large piece is 1516 to base and the smaller 1514 so its probable there are more shapes in the set. Still need feedback on who designer was - will contact collectors club in meantime.

Thanks Adam

A far more utilitarian example compared to the wonderful pots above:
