The size is 22mm high and 19mm wide. It appears to be a white ceramic.

I am not sure but it does have a look of Susie Cooper about it , the fact it says England on its own, suggest early -mid 1920's , but it's just a guess , Ed

Could Adrian be a design or pattern name?

Thanks, big ed. Wasn't Susie's deco stuff hand painted? This looks as though the very thin glaze was sprayed on through a stencil and the finish is matte.

It looks 1930s production to me - perhaps by Shelley or similar pottery?

can you just clear up for me, is the word ADRIAN a printed mark or impressed? it would be very odd for a pattern name to be impressed as more often than not, factories reused mould shapes with different surface decoration. I was going to plump for someone like Myott

"Adrian" and "England" are impressed.

in that case, i would say that either Adrian is a relatively obscure factory, or branch of a larger factory with little known/written about them, or it was a range of wares produced by a factory (probably Staffordshire/stoke on trent) under the name of "ADRIAN".
i've looked on the potteries.org website but couldn't find any reference to it.

It doesn't look new to me - it looks in good condition but then these things were hung on the wall and probably rarely moved.

also, i don't really think there is a market for wall pocket vases today, so it really would be a commercial mistake to manufacture such a thing. i'd agree with pip, 1930s

For what it's worth, I obtained this piece in a box lot at a local estate auction where there were very few if any new pieces. It has been hanging on my wall for 15 years, unmoved (but for an occasional dusting)until I took pics for this site. The colors are a bit more muted in real life.

I just noticed in the photos(didn't see it earlier, believe it or not) a repair on the lower front, about 1.5cm.
