TP pattern
This is the second time I've owned a TP pattern vase, in this shape (399) and painted by Marjory Batt in the early 1930s.  The first one was badly cracked this one is perfect and will stay in my collection for a while.

Handles
EE isn't the most collectable pattern and dating to about 1935 this vase isn't particularly early, but it's chunky proportions and the fantastic Art Deco handles sold for me.   Shape number 973, on the base also is a sticker for the retailer, Alfred B Pearc...

Minature
This salt dish (shape 570) measures just just 4 cm tall.  It's decorated with the same PB pattern that can be found covering 25 com tall vases, but Dorothy James has painted it in miniature to great effect.

This FY pattern, shape 352 vase painted by Gertie Warren in the middle 1920's, has been an all too brief visitor to my collection.  I've owned it for about a year or so, and had it on a list of pots to blog about, but sold it on eBay last week.

Drinking partner
Two things, I cant get enough of, drink and furry beasts, combined here in a single object. The bear came from eBay last month.  The glasses and decanter I found in the Sheffield Antiques Centre today.

Circus Tent
WL is often refereed to as the circus tent pattern.  An inverted version of the pattern forms the top inch or so of the larger XF pattern seen in the previous post.  The shape number for this jug is unclear but may be 678.
