This was the pot that got me most excited last weekend at Keddleston Hall, and I'm still feeling a bit giddy even now. I have paid more for pots in the past, but at just 3 1/2 inches tall, pound of pound this is certainly the most costly vase in my collection to date, and has kept up the pressure on me to sell a few more pots on eBay.
The Pattern name is QB often called "Comic Bird" due to the slightly sparkled looking bird. The design also has two great "bug eye" flower shapes popping out at the bottom. Shape number 361, painted by Gwen Dry beween 1928 and '34.
