Daisy Makeig-Jones Wedgwood Hummingbird Lustre Vase

$1,200

About

A blue hummingbird lustreware vase designed by Daisy Makeig-Jones for Josiah Wedgwood & Sons circa 1920. Daisy Makeig-Jones’s lustreware provided respite from the horrors of World War I and brought new life to a tired Wedgwood Factory. Makeig-Jones’s designs reached the height of popularity during the 1920s; her designs fit well within the intrepid and lively spirit of that decade. Decorated with vibrant hummingbirds in flight, this blue lustreware vase is a gorgeous example of Daisy Makeig-Jones’s unique artistry. The Flying Humming Birds pattern debuted with the popular color combination of deep blue and orange in 1920. A border of stylized birds encircles the interior rim, the Flying Geese pattern borders the exterior rim and base. The vase’s gilding is in exceptional original condition. The base has the printed Portland Vase mark and hand-painted pattern number Z5294. Dimensions: 8 3/4 in. H x 4 3/4 in. W (22.1 cm H x 12.1 cm W) Condition: Excellent. Gilding in exceptional original condition. Nearly invisible 2 cm hairline to interior rim, not visible on the exterior.

About the Maker

Wedgwood

Arguably the most celebrated of all English ceramics makers, Wedgwood was founded in 1759 by Staffordshire potter Josiah Wedgwood (1730–95). The company is famed for its Jasperware — molded Neoclassical stoneware vases, plates and other pieces, inspired by ancient cameo glass, featuring white figures, scenes and decorative elements set in relief on a matte colored background. The best-known background hue is light blue, but Wedgwood’s iconic silhouettes also appear on green, lilac, yellow, black and even white grounds. Some pieces use three or more colors.The Wedgwood firm first came to prominence for its tableware, which quickly gained favor in aristocratic households throughout Britain and Europe. In 1765, Wedgwood was commissioned to create a cream-colored earthenware service for Queen Charlotte, consort of King George III. The queen was so thrilled with her new china that Wedgwood was given permission to call himself “Potter to Her Majesty,” and the decorative style became known as Queen’s Ware. Not to be outdone, Catherine the Great of Russia commissioned her own set of Wedgwood china in 1773. Nearly 200 years later, the firm created a 1,200-piece service for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. In recent years, leading designers including Jasper Conran and Vera Wang have collaborated with Wedgwood — in the tradition of such distinguished 18th century artists such as the painter George Stubbs and metalsmith Matthew Boulton.From plates and other dinnerware to decorative items like urns, cachepots and candlesticks, Wedgwood designs lend a traditional air to Anglophile interiors. And even if you have to make your own tea, you may find it comforting to sip it from a delicate cup that was manufactured in the same Stoke-on-Trent kiln that produced Her Majesty’s tea service. Be sure to keep your pinky raised.
