Vintage Australian vases

Bendigo Pottery, Regal Mashman, and a vase by Clarice. A fantastic selection of vintage Australian pottery.

The asymmetrical vase on the far left and the double-handled ‘urn’ vase were both produced by Bendigo Pottery, Australia’s oldest working pottery [established in the 1850s.] The asymmetrical vase is typical of the 30s, while the larger blue urn vase was made in the 50s.

The green drip vase to the centre front is signed by hand ‘Clarice 1939’. It would be nice to think this might have been made by Clarice Cliff [certainly the date is of the right period, and Clarice Cliff made plainer coloured vases earlier in her career] but I think this is an Australian piece from 1939.

The matching pair of vases to the right are by Regal Mashman, a pottery that operated out of Chatswood, Sydney in the 1930s. These vases are also drip glazed, where the final glaze is a contrast to the first glaze.

The five vases are a nice ensemble – and are also excellent for holding flowers!  For sale: $AUD155

    • thanks anna- i’m not sure which is my favourite…but i do like the 5 of them massed together. maybe it’s the continuity of the drip glazes / and tonal qualities? not sure, but I love ’em!
