Pear-shaped?

This was probably the first Poole vase in my collection, though I'm not sure it's ever lived anywhere other than in it's box under the spare bed.  In the early days of collecting I had different ideas about budgets and how much was reasonable to spend, so this fitted the budget pretty well at the time, though it's all gone a bit pear-shaped since. 
Anyway the vase is from a range called Calypso and dates from 1984. They came in various pastel colours as well as lustre-like glazes and, I can see from Hayward and Atterbury book, quite a lot more shapes that I thought.
