BALUSTER-SHAPED VASES
A 'baluster' is a short plump rounded pillar, holding up a parapet or staircase railing. In pottery the word is used to describe vases that have an outward-bulging body, narrowing throat and flared mouth.

The baluster is one of the most common shapes for pottery vases in general. Nevertheless it was not much used by Premier at first. A baluster vase launched the Early Series as number 1 but after that we have to wait until about number 170 before more appear. Eventually however there were many.

Descriptive names are omitted from this list as being mostly repetitive.
