Beswick Pottery, Art Deco Satin-Matt Sherbet Palette Glaze Carved Globe Vase

$118.05

About

This striking and highly-tactile work of Art Deco design is by British company Beswick Pottery. The form of this piece is clean and elegant, following the classic design principles of Art Deco. The simple form is enhanced by the carved décor that is pattern of stylised spirals, flora and verdure, interlaced with overlapping circular segments, arcs and curves. The refined design is further elevated by Beswick's Satin Matt glaze applied in a manner of techniques, from hand painted to daubed. The radiant palette consists of powdered sherbet tones; including Peach, Turquoise, Lemon Yellow, Sky and Cerulean Blue, Tan and Heather. This beautiful work is stylistically timeless, contemporary but yet also very Art Deco making this work suitable for standalone display or for functional use. Condition Excellent. No chips, cracks or repairs. There is light use wear on the interior and underside of the base with mild crazing all over that is commensurate with the age of this piece. The underside of the base is inscribed with 'Made in England', model number '116M' and Beswick's back stamp. Measurements Height: c. 7.1" / 18 cm tall (from rim to base). Diameter: c. 6.7" / 17 cm (across widest point). Depth: c. 6.7" / 17 cm. Rim diameter: c. 4.8" / 12.3 cm. Base diameter: c. 3.1" / 8 cm. Notes Vase will be securely packaged and shipping will be insured. Shipping will be combined for multiple items. A Bit Of History The Beswick firm was founded around the 1890s by John Beswick in Staffordshire, UK. His son James would take over upon his death, introducing a new range of jugs, bowls and vases decorated with new matt glazes. Responding to the modernist influence in design, many of these highly distinctive shapes were designed by Mr Symcox and decorated in 'satin matt' glazes using soft pastel colours running into each other or arranged in striking modern geometric blocks and lines. Beswick would go on to become known for their ceramic animal figures before being taken over by Royal Doulton in 1969 and finally closing in the early 2000s. Though it is said these pieces will never be worth thousands, still, there is revived and growing interest in these Art Deco pieces as they survive in very good condition.
