Hi,

This range of Strathearn comes in a number of colours (eg. Blue, pink and green) and various shapes. I believe it goes by the nickname of 'Granite' with some collectors, based on the speckles of colour that imitate the granular speckles seen within granite.

Not uncommon.

Chris pretty vase - great colours  :sun:
There is a link below to one Bernard posted a while back which was crackled as well.  I think this range of 'Granite'  is lovely.
