This elegant work of Art Deco Moderne design is attributed to the British Pottery Crown Devon Fieldings, the Amsterdam series. Similar to Art Deco, there is a focus on shape and absence of superfluity, however, the curves and lines of this piece are further streamlined and softly but beautifully exaggerated. The arch of the graduating handle and the angle of the rim are iconic. The piece is further accentuated by its semi-matte glaze decor, a rich blend of Cornflower Silk blue and subtle dappling in tones of Pale Sand.
This refined piece is stylistically elegant, timeless and the combination of the form with the colour palette makes it a rare find.
Excellent. There are no chips or repairs. There is insignificant wear of movement marks to the underside of the base and which is commensurable with the age of the piece. Please refer to photos as they form part of the condition report. The underside of the base bears a faintly inscribed stamp 'No1'.

A BIT OF HISTORY
Crown Devon Fieldings (1870 - 1982)
The pottery was founded in 1870 by Simon Fieldings in Stoke on Trent but it would be 10 years later before they began to produce Majolica style pottery that was popular during the 1880s. Their product range began to expand in the 1890s, working with British United Clock company and they would continue to expand their product range as popularity flourished after successful world trade fairs in the 1900s. They sustained their success for over a century before sadly closing in 1982 at the time of the recession.
