Purple stripes

My latest vase from eBay is this early spill vase or tumbler, painted in fetching purple stripes.  These "Portuguese Stripe" patterns were originally introduced to Poole by James Radley Young in about 1915, but this LC pattern is a later adaptation by Truda Carter and dates to about 1923.  Painted by Ethel Barrett.
