Poole Pottery Art Deco Vase 921 CG

I've wanted one in this pattern for ages now.  Apart from the angular jazzy designs, what I really love about Art Deco are the wider cultural influences that feed it.  The enthusiasm at the time for the art and architecture of Ancient Egypt can be seen clearly in this vase, as with many Art Deco designs by Truda Carter.
The vase is just 8 cm tall and is painted by Winifred Collett who worked at Poole from 1922 until 1936.
