In the past I have drooled over this design, posted here by PhilDMorris in several variants. This one is less ornate than some of Phil's due to a lack of gilding, or what I take to be gilding. However I do I like this version and I love the green peeping out at the top.
Last week I visited a local antique shop, in spite of never having found any glass to my liking there. First I found a good sized Ruckl vase and then this, which was unpriced. I lost the battle with myself and took them both downstairs....... However the proprietor did give me a price I liked on it!
The Beswick factory was in Stoke on Trent in the north of Staffordshire, a county in the English Midlands. I was born in the south of Staffordshire and grew up with this style of pottery as my mother was fond of it. Of course back then I thought it was so passé!
