STUNNING T.G. GREEN
FAIRY GLEN PATTERN
SHAPE ANGULAR ART DECO TEAPOT C.1931-39
made by the Derbyshire pottery makers T.G. Green at their Church
Gresley works. The fabulous angular art deco shape is known as Oblique and the
pattern is Fairy Glen. Both pattern and
shape are very rare survivors today. Introduced in the
early 1930s - the designs typify the best of fashionable English art
deco ceramics. The Fairy
outline is printed with trees, flowers, clouds and bright orange deco
sun raised in slight pottery relief and painted in by hand. Design that
deserves to be remembered and preserved in a museum collection perhaps
as among T.G. Green's best?
Certainly a piece for the connoisseur collector of unusual teapots and
English art deco pottery rarities." Antiques Expert
