Not much on internet - Chessell Barns and Chessell Porcelain but nothing like this piece - must have changed over the years - does look like firm was established mid 70s.

Chessell Pottery vase. I think it's called a 'fish vase', because of the shape and the fish-scale type decoration.
Approx 8.5" high

I always thought the "fish vase" term was used because of the top rim being shaped like a fishes mouth (Is your vases top rim shaped like that also? I can't tell from the picture).

Though I suspect your right about it being because of the decoration as well.

I think they may have been sold as "Ascidian" vases by Chessell Pottery, though that term may have been used for a particular d├ęcor on similar shaped vases, rather than the actual vase shape name.

I'm not sure if the actual term "fish vase" was ever what they were sold as, or if it's what people now come to know them as.

Yes, the rim is a bit like a fish's mouth - or rather, fish's snout. Difficult to photograph - the decoration makes the pics look out of focus.

It's actually a little different to what I was expecting, I imagine a different variation of the same series.

The more common top rim for this kind of vase seems to have 2 "lips" (yours I would say had 1 "lip"), so if looking from one side would form a bit of a V shape.

Yes, I would have thought two lips, but this is more of a snout.

Agreed Skay Excellent
