Powder Blue Lily Bowl
Wedgwood powder blue bowl decorated with Lily of the valley by James Hodgkiss, chief designer at Wedgwood during the early twentieth century.
Lustre glaze had been used to decorate at the Wedgwood factory since the 1820s, flowers on rims of plates and bowls. However the overglaze technique powder-blue, a method bleu souffle used in China since the Ming Dynasty, was not used at Etruria until 1910. Wedgwood perfected a simulation of the original Chinese decoration by a method of stippling cobalt blue onto an already glazed surface. The result was a beautiful and very close imitation of the original Chinese design.
This fabulous bowl was made at the famous Staffordshire pottery circa 1914.
Printed Wedgwood Portland Vase mark to base.
Size: 11 cm high x 24.5 cm diameter.
