Description


An early 20th Century flambe glaze art pottery vase. The backstamp is for Arthur Wilkinson, however it is possible this item was bought as a blank and used by an artist such as Edward Wilkes as the glaze more resembles his or Bernard Moore's work. The buying of blanks to decorate by artists was quite a common practice in the ceramics industry. The glaze is of a tonal red with some darker and lighter patches and it also has an unusual crystalline effect on the surface which is very hard to distinguish.


Condition


Some crazing which is heaviest around the top of the vase and the craze lines have blackened. Some scratches in the glaze not untypical for these soft flambe items. Minor nicks in the glaze around the foot which would appear to be from multiple firing.

Description


A near pair of Wedgwood pink jasper ware vases. They have classical applique in white jasper bas relief with formal dividing panels. Both are dated for 1958. There is a slight difference in height and colour, so they would not have been produced from the same batch of clay. Nicely made examples and not so common in the pink colour way.


Condition


Both in good order with minor wear.

Height: 12.5 cm ( 5 inch )

Condition


Good order with minor wear.

Description

A Georgian period Bristol Green wine glass dating around 1800. It is an English lead glass example and it has a conical foot with a ground and polished pontil. It is produced in two parts with the bowl and stem drawn together and the foot applied. It is of tulip form with a particularly generous capacity for the period. A good example and fine to use, these glasses make good alternative white wine glass.

Condition


A few air bubbles and mineral inclusions typical for the period and minor wear. A tiny flea bite to the underside of the foot rim.

Height: 13 cm ( 5 1/8 inch )

Description


A Wedgwood blue and white Jasperware mid century jug. It is decorated in classical style with Grecian figures and it has a repeating freeze around the upper and lower body. Matt ground and gloss glazed interior so it can be used to hold water and be used as a vase. Impressed marks to the underside and dated to 1967.

Condition


Good order with minor wear. No obvious losses to the appliqué. Some white showing through the rim glaze probably from production. Overall a good example.

Great looking examples of English art pottery and dating around 1910.

Condition


Some burst air bubbles in the glaze from firing. Also some minor white spots in the glaze. Glaze somewhat uneven around the rims. Minor firing flaws to foot rims.

Description


A German porcelain spill type vase in under glaze blue design. It is in the Meissen style and has a swagged design with butterfly. Crossed keys type mark to the base with loops. Would appear to be a mid to late 19th Century example and probably from one of the many facotries which copied the Meissen style.

Condition


Minor wear only, a nice little example.

Description


A set of six Stuart crystal glasses. This design was traditionally used for mead during the Georgian period but would now more likely be used for strong drinks such as barley wine or liqueurs. The bowls are etched with hops and barley. The stems are of twisted design. Good quality lead glass material as you would expect from this factory. Each has the Stuart acid mark to the base.

Condition


All in very good order and they hardly seem to have been used at all.



Approx Dimensions


Height: 10.5 cm ( 4 1/8 inch )
