Scarce Fenella Fern pottery vase made at the Porthleven Pottery and I think she still uses this design in New Zealand. I have done some research below and I don't know how accurate the info is here as there is no history here regarding her time in the UK before Fenella and Graham left for Zew Zealand. So any input or corrections welcome. I have also posted this in the Graham Fern topic.
