Comic Bird

I found this vase on eBay recently.  The pattern is QB, and commonly known as Comic Bird.  I often think the bird has a bit of a G W Bush look  and I end up referring to it as Dumb Bird instead.  At 5 inches tall, this is a decent sized vase for this pattern, it's shape number 169 and painted by Doris Marshall in the late 1920's or early '30.  I though I had a real bargain when I bought it, but when it arrived I soon spotted a faint hairline crack running up to the rim.  I've not raised it with the seller though, as I think I still got my monies worth.
