Curious Chinese Green Glaze Vase

This vase is a revival of earlier heavily glazed green and blue pots designed by John Adams, an example of which can be seen here. It carries the 1952-55 "hand made, hand decorated" Poole factory mark and a stamped shape number 676.  Standing 5 inches tall it's made from a high fired red earthenware body similar to that used for the 1920's pieces. The mottled green glaze covers the inside of the vase also and contrast nicely with the red rim.  Any more information would be very welcome.
