    A quick dash to Salvation for half price Wednesday produced this lovely Wisteria hand painted floral and gilt vase. The beautiful flowers are just a bit different on each side. Actually I was in line with something else and the lady in front of me had her card declined. A big delay ensued while the cashier called the manager to void the sale so she could put back several items. So I decided to have a quick second sweep and bingo...I found this vase for $3.99 ! Not even half price and still what a bargain ! A lovely piece of Crown Devon Vellum pottery with an early S.Fielding. & Co. crown mark. It's known as Royal Wisterian produced around 1900. I also found a guide online to ID it. The Crown Devon Price and Identificaton Guide /The Original Crown Devon Guide from Francis Joseph by Ray Barker. Updated for 2014. This shape is on page 65 of the book as PN 871 but with a Royal Eaton decor. It's in beautiful condition for it's age a few nicks in the base but nothing that shows. -Mike-

    S.Fielding & Company/Crown Devon

    Made by one of the more prominent Staffordshire makers of the day, S. Fielding & Co (That's the initials S.F.&.Co.) located on Sutherland Street, Stoke-on-Trent. In about 1913 they adopted the trade name "Crown Devon" producing a wide range of appealing and affordable art pottery for at least the next fifty years, which became well known and much collected. Fielding's came out with this design deliberately to compete with a successful, but much more expensive, pottery series being produced by Royal Worcester. Fielding's version compared quite well on quality, but was a fraction of the price of the Royal Worcester pieces, so it became highly popular. In 1929 the name "Fielding's" was dropped from the mark and they became simply "Crown Devon".

      Beautiful!!! I totally love SF & Co vellum ware and collect it, especially the 'Royals'. I have got exactly the same vase (same shape and décor), but under the Royal York pattern name.

      Thanks Martika ... what a coincidence that you have this same vase ! Here's the link to the online guide I found. I think it's amazing you can flip through the whole book for free. Although since you collect Crown Devon you may have already seen it.

      Well done again op shop guru! It's great this has no damage, especially to the sponged rim and textured flowers.
    6. mikelv85 mikelv85, 5 years ago
      Thanks Karen :)....well maybe just the tiniest nick to the gold on the edge of rim....but we'll pretend it's just a missed spot by the gilder...lol.

      Lovely decoration on your vase.....but I'd have to say that as I come from Staffordshire too lol

      Thank you Sklo :)...Wisteria are my favorite flowers even if they are a bit invasive. I always kept ours pruned and in tree form. This vase sure is a long way from home but it's had 116 years to travel the world just to wind up in my collection. :)

      I never knew wisteria was invasive, Mike! I love wisteria in photos of Southern homes, they are so beautiful over arbors. Lovely vase, thanks for sharing, you are a great treasure hunter! :)

      Thanks Katherine.... Yes Wisteria are beautiful whether grown as a vine or in tree form. The later requires a lot of pruning to keep it manageable. Mine was always sprouting runners around the base and into the lawn. Kept the trunk and canopy pruned and the lawn mower took care of the runners. Looked like a big purple umbrella when in bloom. :)

      Yes, I think that's what my stained glass mirror featured, purple wisteria. :)
