Cogwheels

I like this vase for the slightly cogwheel styling of the flowers.  The overlapping and concentric circles on this and other Poole patterns remind me also of the Sonia and Robert Delaunay paintings of the teens and twenties of the 20th century. So this vase was definitively on-trend when it was made in the late 1920's or early 1930's. It's 18 cm tall, shape number 575 (I think), pattern DX, painted by Ruth Pavely and it was lot 151 in the 27th June 2016 Hansons' Decorative Arts sale.
