Pates vases

Pates pottery
made in Sydney, Australia c.1946-1958

I have waxed lyrical previously about my love of the ‘Australian’ green and brown hues of Sydney pottery of the post-war period…and here are some more examples from my collection. Pates pottery operated out of Belmore- an industrial suburb of inner-Sydney, from 1946 and only ceased production in 1990.

These drip glaze vases are large and form a nice trio on my timber table. Although the vases themselves are very different in shape and form, the colour palette unites them to form an ensemble.

When flowers are available [and I have native bottlebrush from a relative’s garden here] a vase/vases can be put into service…but the pieces look equally beautiful empty.
