Royal Lancastrian

Here's a Poole Pottery look-alike from eBay.  The base is stamped Lancastrian Pottery England, and the vase was made by Plilkingtons Royal Lancastrian Pottery. But the shape and dimensions are remarkably similar to the Delphis shape 41 vase below, a shape first introduced to Poole by John Adams in the 1930's.  I don't know if this is the result of an early cross-pollination between the two potteries but in 1964 the two tile factories did in fact merge, with Poole Pottery too being absorbed into same conglomerate in 1971.
