We’ve picked up some lovely pieces of mid century modern pottery this week.
This vase dates from the 1950s/60s and was produced in Italy by Ceramico di Milano. These wares have their devoted fans, but generally speaking they’re not that well known and a bit underrated perhaps. They’re all very individual – and hand painted too. Fabulous decoration on this one with a very stylish bambolina – she’ll break a few hearts!
This bull was designed by Elizabeth Skipworth for Lotus Pottery in the 1960s. They come in various sizes – this one’s a small money box.
Next we have this stunning, lidded preserve pot. It’s from the ‘Tricorn’ range introduced by Hornsea Pottery in 1958; one of John Clappison’s early designs and becoming increasingly sought after.
This lamp dates from a similar period. Classic fifties colourway of grey & yellow. It’s unmarked, but we’ve had a similar lamp before. The names on the tip of our keypad! It would look great with a new drum shade in a grey hessian.
Last but certainly not least – a classic piece of Poole Pottery ‘Delphis’ dating from the late 60s or early 70s. It’s by Carol Cutler, one of the most highly regarded decorators at the factory. She has a distinctive style with a wonderful flowing design and stunning colours.
We’ll be listing all these pieces in our webshop in the next few days.
