Raynham Pottery (Australia) Pottery Vase
Ray Cook was a Melbourne-based accountant who established the Ray Cook Pottery in 1948 and Raynham Ceramic Pty Ltd in 1950, on sites in East Bentleigh, Victoria.
The Ray Cook Pottery made a range of slipcast tableware and vases, and some larger wheel-thrown items, under the insignia 'Ray Cook'.
Raynham specialised in slipcast vases using a variety of different labels over time that are well-documented in the Encyclopaedia of Australian Potters' Marks.

Here we have a wonderful piece from their collection - a vase with a painted floral design on a textured white exterior, with a smooth yellow interior.
It's in great vintage condition - however there are a couple of scuff marks on the exterior.
It stands approx 20.5cm tall, 18cm wide, and 7cm deep.
