Carlton Ware Tutenkhamen bowl
Large (9 inch diameter) Tutenkhamen pattern bowl, gilded design on a blue ground, early W&R backstamp with the special Tutenkhamen seal mark. A little wear to the gilding here and there, the bowl does sufferv from a hairline crack (not noticeable), but displays well and this pattern is one of the rarest and not often seen these days.
Carlton Ware Chinaland Ginger Jar
Wow. This is almost certainly the finest Chinaland ginger jar there is. From the original mid 1920's series, it is factory fresh with no damage or any restoration. Gilding 100% intact. Paint 100% intact. In a fantastic private collection for decades. An absolute joy to behold and exrtremely rare in this condition with the most incredible detail. Every bit as good as any Wedgwood Fairyland piece! 7 inches tall.

Carlton Ware Biscuit Barrel
Where do I start? Something for the Carlton Ware collector who has everything? In the form of an orange with leaves at the base, I've come across these before, but this is the only one with the raffia handle completely intact! Reg'd mark for 1930's.
Carlton Ware Gondola in Mikado patterm 4433
Pretty spectacular these gondolas, and we've had a few over the years. Don't see so many of them these days, but this one has popped up after decades in a cabinet. 13 inches long, nearly 6 inches in height. Nicely enamelled with internal and external decorations. No chips, cracks or any restoratiobn, gilding 100% intact. A very minor and barely noticeable hairline makes this the cheapest one you'll ever see.
Carlton Ware Large Jug in Hollyhocks pattern
Stunning statement piece measuring 7.5 inches tall, in matching pattern 3973 from the same home. No chips, cracks or any restoration, but as you will see, there is quite a lot of wear to the gilding on the handle. Not difficult or to expensive to have regilded. c1935.
Carlton Ware Lovebirds pattern vase
Super 10" bottle vase in this rare early pattern from the 1920's. Excellent condition, but those in the know will recognise the patchy orange mottling that Carlton Ware (& others) never quite got right!

These velox shape bowls are just so 1930's and a real Art Deco statement. This is the only one I've ever seen in Jazz Stitch pattern and is just excellent. Condition is faultless having come from an excellent home, having been in the same family for generations. An absolute must for the Carlton ware enthusiast; you won't see another one!
