A very striking and attractive Art Vase from Pilkington’s Royal Lancastrian in Orange Vermilion glaze c1920. The glaze effect on this vase is created by allowing crystals of applied metal oxides to develop before firing. During firing, combustable material was added to the kiln to produce darker 'flares' originating from its base. Impressed mark for Pilkington’s Royal Lancastrian. The vase is 12.5cm in height.
After about five years of tile production, Pilkington’s Royal Lancastrian made its first steps in producing art pottery in 1898. Well known for its range of innovative glazes and designs, Pilkington's success grew. Lean years in the 1930's together with other problems within the company resulted in the closure of their pottery department in 1938.
