Bought this vase today thinking it was Troika. the mark is so difficult to read.
I have not seen the exact design on the net.
Could any members point me in the direction of a possible designer?
Thank you,

Not Troika, Is that a mark in the second pic?
Might be Tolcarne?

Not much like Troika. Never seen that type of impressed mark on Troika, nor base, nor that type of decoration. Its a nice, interesting piece though. That stamped mark needs more investigation.

Thanks for the input on my enquiry. i had a look at the Tolcarne images and did not see
anything similar.
I also looked at the Troika.com site and no images showed an impressed stamp.
I went to the loft this evening and found my troika slab vase for comparison.
To my eye there are a few similarities. The background glaze seems a good match and
the odd few firing bubbles are similar.
That was the best image i could get for the impressed mark.
The coloured circle vase is 150mm high.Designer name for possible troika Img_3715

Troika was a very popular and admired pottery. It is not surprising that some of its design trends showed up in other potters.

Please add a photo of the base of the mystery vase to check clay and construction

The impossible to read mark is on the base of the vase.
The whole vase including the inside is covered in the dark glaze.
On the rear of the vase is the only clue to the construction material.
It appears to me to be an off white or cream clay.
I have only noticed tonight that there is three of those white marks on the back
which i think were stilt supports.
Thanks for the continued interest

Tim

It’s very unusual. I think it would be best to ask the Troika Collector’s club

The Club may have an archive of Troika wannabes

One hopes they'll be polite, but if it's not Troika then they might not be
