This is a cute little hand-painted piece of early 20th century Bough pottery.
It takes the form of a little pot or miniature shouldered vase.
It fully marked to the base, as photographed.
This little vase is probably a little blank of this earthenware vase which was made by Maling and Sons, Newcastle-on-Tyne, and used by Bough Pottery. This one is decorated by Arthur H. Amour at the Studio in Edinburgh in 1922.
The decoration features the attractive stylised flowers that you find on Bough pieces. There is a selection of flowers all around with large flower heads in blue, plum. yellow and green shades - with three blocks for solid grey-green colour in between. A very pretty little pot.
CONDITION: In good condition for a pot now 97 years old - with no chips or cracks. The clear glaze on the pot has a subtle all-over craquelure all over the surface - this seems quite common with lots of Bough pieces - and has occurred in the making as part of the second glaze firing.
Dimensions: Height: 3 inches. The diameter at the widest point is 3 1/2 inches.
Bough Pottery was founded by Elizabeth and Richard Amour in the 1920s. They specialized in decorating blanks - which they bought in from pottery companies in England and Scotland (many from Maling Pottery, Newcastle).
This small display piece is in good condition with no chips or cracks.
