Crown Devon – Matt Glaze or Lustre Which Do You Prefer?

Producing high quality decorative ware and popular tableware for more than a century the Crown Devon Fielding’s pottery is known as one of the premier potteries from Stoke On Trent.

The quality of the work from the Crown Devon Pottery can be seen in the two examples below. The first is an example of the lustre wares that the pottery produced – a deep rich ruby lustre vase decorated with an elaborate enamelled and gilded pattern.

The second is a large matt glazed pitcher in a dusky yellow decorated with an elaborate enamelled galleon at sea with gilded edging and handle.

Both pieces are very striking and very different, one shiny and one matt – which do you prefer?!
