Presenting an excellent piece of Mid Century, Art Deco inspired ceramic vase produced by Sylvac. The body has been formed with a series of diagonal 'swathes', giving the appearance of a light spiral, the scroll handles are asymmetrical in placement. The glaze has been applied in horizontal layers, a pale apple-green graduates towards the mottled sea-foam of blues before it reaches the final layer of mottled turquoises. Offset against the external glaze is the cream of the vases interior.
This piece would 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 and light wear which is commensurable with age of the piece - please see do see photos as part of condition report. There is a minor dip on the right hand scroll handle which was formed during production. The base of the vase is inscribed with '684' and 'Sylvac'.
