This great little vase features a very mod overlapping triangle design. Pottery Craft of Compton, California made this glossy Mid-Century Modern vase. It is often attributed to Robert Maxwell but he did not actually make this one. The glaze alternates between gloss, satin, and matte. This design came in two color schemes—dark colors and light colors. This one is the darker spectrum: sepia, gold, copper and black.

The form is so very geometric: the columnar body has a square shoulders and a flat bottom, the neck is narrow, the mouth opens up wide and has a rolled edge.

Handmade in the USA in the late 1960s or early 1970s. It has a maker’s mark along the bottom edge that’s too faint to photograph.
