Remembrances of Summers Past

Pilkington Royal Lancastrian English Arts & Crafts Rosebowl by E.T. Redford (LEO Design)

Although the Autumnal Equinox was over a month ago—and, thus, the days are getting shorter and shorter—I thought we could use a refreshing breeze of summer just gone by.

The vase above was made by Pilkington Royal Lancastrian in the 1930’s.  It was wheel-thrown by E. T. Radford and is signed with his initials.  The glazing is a soft blend of dappled (summery) blues—perhaps clouds reflected in a placid, rippling pond.  The combination of color and form is so very typical of soft English Art Deco craft—and sure to take you back to a gentle summer afternoon.
