This chic work of Mid Century Art Deco design brings with it quiet glamour and classic retro vibes.
The shape is definitively Art Deco of the 1930s with its boldly angular form and handle, providing an excellent base for the glaze. The glaze begins with a base glaze in a vibrant Azure blue that has then been overlaid with the iridescent lustre glaze. This piece is finished with a hand painted gold gilding to the rim, base and handle to give further subtle hints of opulence.
A BIT OF HISTORY
James Sadler and Sons Ltd was founded in 1882 by James Sadler in Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom. The company initially specialised in name for themselves by making fine earthenware teapots and James Sadler teapots became synonymous with quality and good taste. The first teapots were made using a red clay with a dark brown glazed surface. The Rockingham Brown, or 'Brown Betty' as it is affectionately known, is still in production today using a more elegant, less utilitarian, white clay. From these beginnings, the company flourished and grew.The rapid growth of the ceramic industry in the 19th century brought prosperity to Staffordshire, and as passion for English pottery grew in the middle of this century, James Sadler products very quickly became famous around the world.
Superb. There are no chips or cracks. There is mild use wear that is most evident on the gold glaze at the foot of the vase and minor scratches on the lustre glaze - please refer to photos as part of condition report. The underside of the base is impressed with the 'JANE' mark.
