A scarce Torquay Devon pottery multi-necked (udder) posy vase hand painted with a daffodil attributed to Aller Vale Pottery dating from around 1890. The vase made in terracotta clay is of round bulbous shape standing on a flat narrow round base and with a narrow central trumpet shape opening with three smaller trumpet shape openings around it. The body of the vase is decorated in rich green and brown glazes and over painted in thick glazes with a solitary daffodil. The vase is not marked however there were a number of Torquay potteries who produced these in varying designs and believe this one was made at Aller Vale and recorded as shape 901.

Provenance: From a private collection and thence UK Art Market.

In good condition with wear associated with age and use.
