Pearsons of Chesterfield Vase
Pearsons of Chesterfield have been producing stoneware in Derbyshire since 1810 when an existing pottery was acquired by Catherine Pearson. They also made some industrial wares alongside jugs, vases and tableware.
This vase with ridged forms to the lower half was probably made in the 1960s. At the same time they also produced a range of kitchenware that borrowed from Victorian stoneware such as marmalade jars and ink bottles.
The gently splayed form of this vase makes it a great vessel for a bunch of flowers. The duck egg blue glaze covers the outside and has an ombre fade on the inside surface.
In good condition with no chips or cracks. Some crazing to the glaze.
Diameter (at rim): 16.9cm
Diameter (at base): 11.2cm
