Pilkington Royal Lancastrian English Arts & Crafts Vase with Jade "Shagreen" Glaze (LEO Design)

The Pilkington Royal Lancastrian potteries were located outside of Manchester and, though they were not the biggest producer, they always made a higher-quality product.  Some of their intricate, hand-painted, “artistic” pieces now fetch tens of thousands of dollars.  The more simply-glazed items are still within the reach of most casual collectors.  But don’t let the solid green glaze fool you; the jade green glaze is actually a complex blend of green, blue and yellow, creating a “shagreen-like” texture to the piece.  

There's still time to order this as a wonderful Saint Paddy's Day gift.  Please click on the photo above to learn more about it.
