6.5" high vase in vibrant colours. This is cold painted and in excellent condition for that. Marked Brentleigh Ware England - Vigo. Found a lot on eBay but not much googled info. I think this is 50s.

Very unusual pattern for a Howard pottery Brentleigh piece. Many patterns fail to interest collectors as they tend to be too weak in the artistic merit of the pattern. Your piece, with its strong abstract pattern, utilizing the Vigo shape has just balance in design. It's great to see a piece in fab condition, since many Brentleigh wares suffer from flaking paint.

This is an Iona shape.
It begs the questions "What is style, what is fashion?".
This might have been the epitome of cutting edge commercial design and taste back in the 60s (presumably) when it was created, so what has changed and why?(apart from the long crack inside).
