Here is a small treasure—a statuesque bud vase made by Pilkington and dated to 1911. This was a time of experimentation in British ceramics, as studio potters started to compete with the major manufacturers with unique or small-run items imbued with the style of the individual artist. Some of the large factories created distinct lines with these trends in mind, encouraging their artists to come up with novel decorative ideas that the factory could produce. Pilkington’s first started out making decorative tiles, then later expanded into other ceramics, including the use of glaze effects. This unique vase shows all the style of a unique studio item, but it was actually a factory piece. It has a red body with a Chinese-type celadon blue glaze that has developed striations across the surface. It is in perfect condition, undamaged, and stands almost six inches tall.
