The charming piece of mid-century, Art Deco-inspired ceramic vase is by British Pottery SylvaC.
The form is shaped with sculpted Art Deco influences, from the overlapping curving yet angular accented handle and spout to the broad scallop detail at the belly. the decor is finished with dimple detail all over. The all-over glaze which has been applied inside and out is a semi-matte shade of warm Fawn.
This charming piece is stylistically versatile and could compliment an Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Retro or Vintage decor theme inspired room.
A BIT OF HISTORY
SylvaC (with a deliberate capital C at the end) is a brand of British ornamental pottery characterised primarily by figurines of animals and Toby Jugs. The company was founded in 1894 by William Copestake and William Shaw. Central to the SylvaC line throughout its history were figurines of animals, and rabbits in particular. The SylvaC company briefly ceased production in 1982 although production of SylvaC pieces was resumed in 1998 by the current trademark holder Norman Williams. SylvaC pieces are not rare; however, they are becoming collectable, and the best pieces can fetch high prices.
Excellent, no chips, cracks or scratches with minimal crazing all over that is commensurable with the age of the piece. Please refer to photos as they form part of the condition report. The base of the vase is inscribed Sylvac's 'SYLVAC, MADE IN ENGLAND', the number '1784' and '4'.
