(i) This pattern has been named 'Liquorice' by Myott collectors, owing to the black liquorice string-like design.
(ii) This particular example has been painted extremely well by a higher competent decorator. The paint quality adheres to the orignal design from the Myott pattern books where the small black blocks on the front and back of the vase finish at a point and the 'liqorice' strands vary in thickness. Other examples just show square blocks and 'liquorice' strands of regular thickness. Thsi si the best example of this piece I have seen so far.
