Retro English Vase

R165.00 R99.00

I bought this 1950s vase from the same spot as the Italian vase that we had for sale last week – they definitely have the same crazy retro aesthetic to them, don’t they? This English Brentleigh ‘Carmona’ version looks very similar to Chalkware (although I think it  is ceramic, not plaster of Paris), so instead of being glazed it’s painted with a matte chalky paint – the forerunner to Annie Sloane! Chalkware is often quite badly worn, as it’s much more susceptible to damage than a glaze which has been fired, but this vase is in pretty good nick! There are some red speckles, but they’re from the painting process, and then there are what looks like one or two smudges, but nothing too serious.

A seriously striking, and really unusual piece of retro English design.

Dimensions: 18cm tall x 13cm wide x 10cm deep
