Painted by Walter Sedgley and Albert Shuck and manufactured in England by Royal Worcester. 1912
Shape 2266, bottle form with deep green glaze and blue glaze interior. Hand-painted with a pair of swans in white and blue, swimming among water-lily flowers.
Sabrinaware, Royal Worcester’s answer to popular art potteries of the period was named for the Goddess of the River Severn. It was patented in 1894 by William Moore Binns the then Art Superintendent; a man whose beliefs in the ideals of the Arts & Crafts movement lead him to experiment with glazes in imitation of Japanese porcelain.
This vase, in addition to the unique glaze pattern, is hand-painted by two of Royal Worcester’s most talented artists, Walter Sedgely and Albert Shuck, in a style reminiscent of the aesthetic movement of the Mid-Victorian period.
Though Sabrinaware was produced until 1930, demand for pieces as luxurious as this waned after the First-World War, and Royal Worcester never again ventured into the world of Art pottery.
