Pilkington Royal Lancastrian English Art Deco High Shouldered Vase with Mottled Orange and Yellow Glazing (LEO Design)

For the last several days, we've been sharing a few of our favorite pieces of sunny, orange pottery.  Nothing chases away the Winter Blues quite as well as a sideboard full or radiating orange ceramics!  Let's end our parade of favorite orange ceramics with this handsome and commanding English Arts & Crafts piece by Pilkington Royal Lancastrian.  This classic, high-shouldered vase was made in the 1920's.  A curdled, deep orange glaze—over a brighter marigold—suggests molten lava running-down the sides of this vase.  Its size, shape and coloration is certain to make it the center of attention—wherever you place it.  Click on the photo above to learn more about this piece.
