Star Vase

I had to save up to buy this vase from a fellow collector.  It's made from red earthenware and has an impressed hexagonal trial mark.  It's also is a little bit famous, as a photo of this very vase appears on  page 69 of Robert Prescott-Walker's "Collecting Poole Pottery", and now it has a staring role in my own collection.  Shape Number 440 (5 1/2 inches tall), PI pattern painted by Clarice Heath between 1929 and 1934.    PI is a rare pattern that works beautifully with this shape and has the advantage or offering a great view from above.
