WALES ART POTTERY INKY
BLUE GLAZE JUG VASE - EARLY 20TH
striking Ewenny Wales art pottery hand thrown jug vase with an unusual inky blue glaze
colour way. Ewenny
pottery South Wales dates from the 19th century. Within fifty
years it became the major art pottery of Wales. We estimate this
vintage piece dates from around the 1920s art deco period. Pieces however
are difficult to age exactly as standard shapes and marks have been in
long periods into the 20th century. Many mottled and
running-glaze Ewenny Art Pottery vases were produced and each glaze
effect on these delightful hand crafted pieces is effectively unique."Antiques Expert Hamilton Bear.

bright light. The piece remains very robust and displays very well
