Bombay School Pottery
Late 19th to early 20th century 

The glazed ceramic ware known as Bombay School Pottery was made in an experimental kiln set up by Mr. Terry, the superintendent of the Sir. J.J School of Art. Mr. Terry introduced a new range of shapes and experimented with clay from different regions to make durable pottery. This vase demonstrates a blend of western form and design inspired by a traditional Indian motif, the peacock feather. This pottery was much admired and popular at international exhibitions.
