Superb Wiltshaw and Robinson Large Carlton Ware Lustre 'Persian Medallion' Octagonal Bowl c1920


A superb lustre, gilt and enamelled Carlton Ware large octagonal bowl designed by Enoch Boulton using the early technique of translucent lustre glazes. This technique produces a depth of colour and iridescence associated with these experimental wares which are virtually 'one off' pieces and precursors of the later art deco enamelled and lustre wares. The outside of the bowl is a fantastic deep electric blue and each of the eight panels has stylised leaf and flowers in red and pale blue lustre all lined in gold. The rim inside and out has a beautiful gilt and enamel Persian motif of tiny enamelled flowers and scrolled gold on pale blue. In vivid contrast, the interior of the bowl is a fabulous deep orange lustre with stylised enamelled passion flowers and fan palms. The centre of the bowl has a magnificent panel of gilt and enamel flowers radiating outwards to form a Persian medallion. In excellent condition; no damage, restoration or signs of wear. One of the finest pieces of old Wiltshaw and Robinson 'Carlton Ware' lustre I have ever seen. Printed W & R Crown and Bluebird mark with Carlton Ware and various decorators' marks. Width 22.25cm (8.75in), height 11cm (4.3in)
