English Art Deco "Chameleonware" Two-Handled Trophy-Form Vase with Mottled Blue and Green Glazing by George Clews (LEO Design)

This week we are sharing pieces from our collection of George Clews "Blue Chameleonware" Art Deco ceramics made in England in the Twenties and Thirties.

This two-handled, trophy-form "loving cup" vase makes the perfect home for your tiny handful of flowers—perhaps three, five or seven stems.  And the piece is an excellent addition to a collection of blue vases and bowls—for it gives unique variety of shape and size to a group of more traditional vases.  The cornflower blue undercoat is mottled with an organic, dripping mossy green top glaze.  The spontaneous, random glaze "softens" the otherwise crisply serious, ancient form.  Made in the Twenties or Thirties by George Clews "Chameleonware" in Art Deco England.
