Royal Lancastrian Lapis Ware Bowl by Gladys Rogers Edward Thomas Radford ETR Pilkington 168A
|Royal Lancastrian Lapis Ware Bowl by Gladys Rodgers Edward Thomas Radford ETR Pilkington 168A. This is a super bowl potted by one of the best pot throwers of all time Edward Thomas Radford. He was an apprentice at Wedgwood, then moved to Linthorpe, followed by Burmantofts then Doulton Lambeth then back to Wedgwood before moving to Pilkington. He was at Pilkington between 1903 and 1936 where he started designing his own pots and signed them etr. This bowl has the edge turned over and in on itself. Amazing. The Made in England stamp was used from 1920 until 1938. Lapis ware of which this is an example was introduced in 1928. This was a special decorative technique where the colours softened and merged with the glaze. Gladys Rogers was a painter and had won various prizes and medals for her work. In 1928 she started painting Lapis ware. Her signature is painted on the base. This bowl shows a truly magical combination of potter and painter and results a very beautiful and artistic piece of work. It dates between 1928 and 1936.
