Here is the vase that led to the creation of this catalogue.
It belonged to my grandmother, and after her death passed to my wife which was the beginning of her love of Australian drip-glaze pottery.
Listing and photographing my wife's modest collection became an intriguing exercise, and led to the hunt for more shape numbers (and more .... and
more .... ! )

144 & 144/8

Shape resembles 144, but much bigger, height; 32 cm.
And most striking of all - koalas! (If it were numbered it might be '144/12B')
It's hard to know where to catalogue this splendid piece
