kaz — Sowerby bowl pattern 2616 bowl, also known in a later version without the asymmetric "handles", launched 1938.   One of Sowerby's best Art Deco designs.   Your 2616 vase, Cheryl, again in both versions, comes on a 2616 plinth.
Thanks for noting and reporting the number on the plinth.   :hiclp: :hiclp: :hiclp:

Occasionally you can find an original 2616 garniture set — a bowl garnished by a pair of matching vases.
