Although only small - the largest is only three and a half inches (9cm) high - these mini vases are certainly big on 1960s style.
Made by Hornsea Pottery between 1961 and 1963, these colourful little pots are from the Rainbow range. The fluted yellow bodies are decorated in hand applied horizontal bands in black, red, grey and pale blue.
I particularly like the shape of the two vases shown in the close-up photos, they seem to have a sort of Japanese feel about them.
Perhaps the bright yellow colour would be a bit tricky to fit into today's colour schemes, but a display of Rainbow pots wouldn't half add a splash of colour to a room.
