Made 1946.
For Later Series pieces, exact dates of manufacture are seldom possible. They are never marked with a date as some Early Series pieces are. This 8-8 vase however is firmly believed to have been made in 1946. The owner writes " My father briefly worked in a pottery in Preston shortly after coming home after the war. We think he bought it from the factory in 1946."
