Details, Condition, and Marks

What a lovely, and unique 75 year old British Art Vase hand made and painted sometime between 1920 and 1930. This beautiful British Art Pottery vase was made in the borderline art deco era of Britain by Staffordshire firm called Canning Pottery, owned by RH and SL Plant. The vase has a base color of brown flowing into dark rich colors of greens, whites, purples, and rust reds. Measurements are: 8-3/8" Tall by 4" Wide in mid center. The vase bears the Canning Pottery Co. "Decoro" trademark registration number of 429479 (see company history below). This wonderful vase is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks or flea bites. What a great addition this will make to your pottery collection or such a great gift with Christmas just around the corner. I have also included a picture of other items made by the Canning Pottery Co. displayed in a showcase. History Sometime between 1912 and 1921 the Canning Pottery Co. was formed and Harold J. Plant (son of RH Plant was a partner. Their principal production was teapots and jugs but in 1923 they registered the "Decoro" trademark and the trademark registration number was 429479. These "Decoro" wares were of an all-over decoration in dark colors and were a sideline to their principal production of teapots. The production of this type of "decoro" appears to have finished about 1930, when the factory expanded its teapot and jug manufacture, then in 1932 they started producing a "Decoro Flame" ware with a strated glaze effect and later, in 1933, they introduced a more floral hand-painted ware that, still carry the "Decoro" trademark. The factory ceased production sometime between 1936 and 1940.
