Can anyone offer any suggestions about the maker of this lovely hand blown vase? It has a rough pontil and measures 13cm in height.

Hi,

Post war Nazeing, or 'Elwell', made by Nazeing. There is still some debate about it, but certainly the Nazeing stable. It came in a number of colour ways, including yellow, blue, pink and green - all haviing the same clear foot and snapped off pontil.

I suspected from the look of the green swirls it could be Nazeing, but this shape was completely unknown to me. Many thanks for your help.
