6.5" high vase in vibrant colours. This is cold painted and in excellent condition for that. Marked Brentleigh Ware England - Vigo. Found a lot on eBay but not much googled info. I think this is 50s.

BRENTLEIGH POTTERY VIGO

Very unusual pattern for a Howard pottery Brentleigh piece. Many patterns fail to interest collectors as they tend to be too weak in the artistic merit of the pattern. Your piece, with its strong abstract pattern, utilizing the Vigo shape has just balance in design. It's great to see a piece in fab condition, since many Brentleigh wares suffer from flaking paint.

This is an Iona shape.
It begs the questions "What is style, what is fashion?".
This might have been the epitome of cutting edge commercial design and taste back in the 60s (presumably) when it was created, so what has changed and why?(apart from the long crack inside).

Brentleigh vase originally owned by my grandmother. Navarre shape. It still has 15/6 written on the bottom in pencil. Does anyone know why the makers decided to use paint to decorate their vases as it isn't very durable? This vase isn't too bad but the red paint is flaking on the inside

Maybe it was to do with rationing? Iím guessing they were made in the 50s when rationing, especially fuel, meant they couldnít fire decorative pots (as opposed to functional ware) a second time to properly glaze them.

Ah, the memories, one of my first purchases was a Brentleigh vase with a moulded triangle on each side of it, one at the top and another at the bottom. The mark read "Marwood Brentleigh Ware England. I remember trying to look it up in the local library, failed of course. Had no internet back then either.

Much like this one...
