A vintage studio pottery shell shaped vase, by Carn Pottery, Penzance, Cornwall from the 1970s or so. It's model number N62 (hand signed to base).

Carn Pottery was John Beusmans; he used muted blue, brown and green glazes over a pale neutral-toned clays and is best known for his geometric Cubist or angular pieces. The outers of this shell would have been moulded from scallop shells, and coloured with cobalt blue, then rubbed back to reveal highlights and lowlights. A pale stoneware/clay sculpture with a glossy cream glazed inner. John was inspired by the Cornish sea and landscapes and primitive Celtic/Runic Studio Pottery designs.

Signed to the base with 'N62' and stamped with the Carn logo. 11.5cm tall x 12cm wide x 6.5cm deep. Excellent condition. The blue is a muted grey/green blue, like the sea or ocean.

Price includes P&P to the UK.

Absolutely love this little vintage pottery fish money box. Exactly what we were looking for - it looks super cute and will complete the aquatic theme in a newly decorated room. It arrived quickly and was very well packaged. Great service from CocoCollectables, will shop there again :)

I am so delighted to have found this gorgeous piece. A beautiful glaze, colour and form from one of my favourite West German makers Karlsruhe. It fits in perfectly with my collection (here it is with a bigger sibling). Sam was great to deal with: it came very carefully packaged and was dispatched and delivered promptly. I’d happily shop here again.
