New Devon Pottery Vase
The joy of this vase is that you can decide to either embrace the 70s vintage decoration or you can ignore it entirely and relegate that decorated side of the vase to the wall.
New Devon Pottery was established in 1957 in Newton Abbott, Devon. Originally the workshop was in a garage but they soon moved to a factory premises. The life of the pottery was relatively short lived, they ceased trading in 1984. This vase dates from the 1970s.
The shape of the vase is really elegant and the base glaze colour is a completely inoffensive creamy white which would enable it to sit in all manner of interiors and alongside a broad range of other pottery. If you are using the vase for flowers you may well need some additional support for the blooms and foliage. You can achieve this either via some scrunched up metal chicken wire or with the use of a Niwaki Kenzan flower support. We would advise against the use of florists’ oasis; the traditional foam is toxic and non-biodegradable. The RHS have decide to ban its use at all garden and horticultural shows in 2021 – you can read more about this here.
In good condition with no chips or cracks. The company logo is printed to the underside of this New Devon Pottery vase. Though quite why the logo for this pottery features a beaver holding a jug is a mystery.
