Troika Pottery Coffin vase are one of Troika’s most popular vases amongst the Troika collecting fraternity, there are a total of nine different designs! (listed below)

When pricing these vase`s the usual rules apply amongst others, with those being……. Rarity, Quality, Design, Colour, Weight and of course Collectability.

For example, there are three ‘Stickman’ type Coffin vases which vary in design, with some rarer than others so consequently for example a Type 3 Stickman vase is far more desirable and collectable than a Type 1 Stickman vase, when applying the Rarity, Quality, Design, Weight and Colour to the vase.

Another example would be the ‘Rhombus’ Coffin vase, which is far rarer than a ‘Portal’ Coffin vase.

With fully glazed vases being more collectable than a unglazed finish vase.

Here is the list of the 9 named Coffin Vases in order of rarity, expense, collectability, with number one being the rarest and number 9 being not so rare.


Next to each of the Coffin vases names are the meaning of their name.

1/ Rhombus (Rhombus is a flat square with 4 equal straight sides)

2/ Cumulus (Cumulus are clouds which have flat bases)

3/ Annulus (Annulus are rings/circles shaped objects)

4/ Stickman Type 3 (Explains this type of man in Coffin)

5/ Timer (The name given as the look is one of an Egg Timer)

6/ Stickman Type 2 (Explains this type of man in Coffin)

7/ Portal (Portal is a type of Doorway)

8/ Stickman Type 1 (Explains this type of man in Coffin)

9/ Domino (The name given as the look is one of a Domino)


If we’re talking about generic “collections” and not anything specific, then the easy answer is “three”. One is an object. Two is a pair. Three or more is a collection, assuming you have them with the intention of collecting them. That’s how it started, but then I found I personally don’t like odd numbers and, if you have an even numbered collection then  you need to fit a shelf to put them on.  Once you have a shelf you fill the shelf but then find your single shelf looks too cramped, so to be safe you buy another shelf, then you need to fill the new shelf because a few pieces spread out looks quite sparse. Each piece to me is in its self a work of art, the earthly colours, the uneven texture and quirky shapes.  I have a couple of shelves now, in gloss white with  subtle LED lights that displays my collection rather well, but the wall now needs more shelves to balance out the odd numbers….
