Minimalist Troika Pottery? please help me ID! I would really appreciate it.

Hi everyone

I require help from any Troika collectors. I recently picked up this pair of floating vases for a a small fee of 20p each, I seen these or similar listed as a Troika design and have seen some on line that are signed these however are not. I am not a Troika collector or knowledge box so I thought I would see if anyone could confirm or deny their legitimacy. Any help or information is appreciated

Cheers

It's the best part of 30 years ago that I used to sell Troika and in those days 20p or 50p was the prices that I often paid.

The Troika marks are probably the easiest to fake and if you have seen any online then I suspect that it what someone has done.

I am not an expert on Troika but I remember many similar black glazed pieces around back in the day and the feeling then was that they were stylish imports probably from Europe. Worth what you paid and more but, as to where thy were made, I can't say add anything.

Although Troika was moulded and made of earthenware, like these, the clay looks/looked different.

Not a shape Iíve come across before. I think thereís a Troika website which lists all the signatures and styles, so best to contact them directly for confirmation

Yes I have looked for a website that I thought existed too but with no luck (I know Tremaen pottery has a really good archival one), I have also found another Troika pottery thread on 20thCF that features a white version of this shape that I will investigate along with this article on some similar minimalist style Troika

Thanks for your information :)
