These chic works of mid-century Art Deco design are by British pottery J Sadler & Sons (1899 - 2000) brings with them quiet glamour and classic retro vibes.
The form is definitively Art Deco of the 1920s and 30s with a shape that is softly angular and geometric, providing an excellent base for the glaze. The base glazes are a pale Shell pink and a pale Mint green that has then been overlaid with the iridescent lustre glaze. Both pieces are finished with a hand-painted gold gilding to the rim, base and wings that give additional yet subtle hints of opulence.
A BIT OF HISTORY
J (James) Sadler and Sons Ltd was founded in 1899 by James Sadler in Stoke-on-Trent, United Kingdom. The company initially specialised in making a name for themselves by making fine earthenware teapots and teapots by James Sadler became synonymous with quality and good taste. The first teapots were made using a red clay with a dark brown glazed surface. 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 the 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, cracks or repairs. There is mild use wear that is most evident on the painted gold gilding and to the lustre glaze. Please refer to photos as they form part of the condition report. The reverse of both pieces bears Sadler's stamp; the green piece denotes 'SADLER, MADE IN STAFFORDSHIRE' and the pink denotes 'SADLER, MADE IN ENGLAND'. Both stamps were in use from the mid-1940s.
