Around the time of the 1900's, 20'30's companies such as Wedgwood with the Daisey Makieg Fairy Lustre work were at the forefront of what is known as Lustre/Luster work in Stoke On Trent UK.
Carltonware based in Stoke On Trent UK also designed a red series, blue, green, orange and pink with interesting characters like Shipping themes, the Mikado, Fairy and Dragons etc. There were just so many lovely pieces produced in various sizes, styles, colours etc. I'm happy to have a rarer piece in this pink item to add to my blue and red pieces but there are so many rarer, larger and unusual pieces to collect...one day :)
Here you see the rare pink version. Wiltshaw & Robinson by Carltonware. The Seaweed or Carp Vase.
With the wonderful assistance of Miss Penny again I've managed to acquire this lovely piece...
