This Pilkingtons Royal Lancastrian lustre vase is a truly stunning piece. Standing a massive 10″ tall it would make a superb centre piece. It is decorated in a brown and creamy lustre with a dragon pattern around the body and has full markings to the base, including the Pilkingtons bee mark c1904-1914, and the artist mark of Gordon M Forsyth.
The seller has included many photographs of the piece, but as with all photographs of this type of ware it is very tricky to achieve photographs that actually show off the beauty of the pieces. With the way the lustre reflects and the use of flash, you can often find yourself in the vase reflection if not careful!
Nevertheless from the photographs you can see the pattern, shape, base markings and general condition of the vase, and as with all auctions if unsure be sure to contact the seller BEFORE bidding with any questions you may have about the piece.
I’ve just spotted a Pilkingtons Royal Lancastrian lustre lidded bowl on eBay. It is an extremely finely-decorated piece by Gladwys Rodgers, one of the most collectable of the Royal Lancastrian artists.
Royal Lancastrian lustre wares are quite often worn or may have cracks, hairlines or crazing. Their thin bodies and the glazes that were used make this inevitable. However, this piece appears to be in excellent overall condition and is illustrated with no fewer than 12 photographs!
It’s a truly stunning and rare example of early 20th century art pottery.
Further to this stunning lidded pot that finished on eBay at £775 on 12th May, I’ve just spotted a super Pilkingtons Royal Lancastrian lustre vase. Displaying the pattern extremely well over its bulbous body it is a large and striking vase.
