This Foley Pottery earthenware vase stands 7" high by 6" in diameter. The Foley Pottery was produced at the Wileman & Co. Pottery, Staffordshire, England, starting around 1894. Frederick Rhead, father of Frederick Hurten Rhead, became the Art Director at Wileman in 1897 until 1912. The Wileman Company eventually became Shelley Pottery Works into the 1920s. The mark on this vase dates it to circa 1910. This handsome vase has a classic bulb form, with a tapered rim. This earthenware vessel is squeezebag decorated with Daisies and leaves in a fabulous organic English Arts & Crafts design, really handsome in its presentation. It is underglazed in an earthy deep green color, with orangy-brown-center yellow ochre blossoms and cascading dark green leaves, with orangy-brown stems. This vessel is well marked on the base, a mark that was used in 1910. The word 'Faience' was the line name. Rhead, as the Art Director, named many of the lines using Italianate names like Intarsio, Urbato and Faience, among others. This vase is in near factory mint condition, with just two old tiny no harm glaze surface nicks at the rim, which we show in the closeup photos. The pottery is not affected, just the surface glaze. This vessel is a perfect example of English Arts & Crafts, and it is really handsome!
