Tiny Shape 882 QO Pattern Vase

The snow kept me and my mate away from the Lincolnshire Show Ground Antiques Fair today.  But here's another little geometric pattern vase to add to my collection which came to me from eBay earlier this month.  It was painted by Iris Skinner in the late 1920's or early 30's.
The trick with these pots, I think, is to find really small ones, which maximises the amount of pattern, and means you can house a large number in a small area.  The QO pattern is quite common I think but still very attractive and just about looks it's best in this shape pot.  There is a yellow and black variant that I still need to find.
