An exceptional English studio pottery vase decorated with stylized patterning by renowned British potter Bernard Howell Leach (British, 1887-1979) and dating from the mid-20th Century. This stunning stoneware vase is of squat rounded shape standing on a narrow unglazed round foot and is decorated in think blue green glazes over brown with a shaped flat top rim and applied with abstract designs to two sides probably a branch with a hanging fruit. The design is picked out in tones of red and brown set against a white ground. The vase has similar brown patterning around the top rim and the glaze quality is simply superb and probably one of the finest examples of Bernard Leach work we have had the pleasure in offering. The vase has impressed BL seal mark along with a Leach Pottery mark and is also marked ENGLAND.
