One night stand

These two shape 583 vases were sold together as lot 159 in the Cottees Harvey Collection sale, but they may never sit side by side again, as one almost certainly destined for resale on eBay (perhaps after at rest in a box under the spare bed). The vase at the front is CL pattern painted by Ethel Barrett in the first half of the 1920's. For me it has a charming combination of age and naivety and it will be proudly displayed next to my CL patterns bowl and candlestick.  The other vase is TI pattern byAudrey Miles who work at Poole between 1938-42.
