Perhaps your dad has an advanced aesthetic style. How about a handsome English Art Deco rosebowl from the 1920's or 1930's? It was made by Pilkington Royal Lancastrian and straddles the Arts & Crafts and Art Deco periods. The vertically-ribbed form is incised with a meandering Greek Key motif. The piece is then finished with a dappled ombre glaze—lighter at the top and darker at the bottom. The color is reminiscent of the way sunlight filters through increasingly deep waters. It looks great by itself or brimming with roses, gardenias or peonies. Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
