Richards Tiles Ricardia Ware Red Blue Mottle Glaze Vase

Description and Condition

This auction is for a vase designed and produced in England in the 1930s at Richards Tiles of Stoke on Trent, England .

The vase is manufactured in their Ricardia ware, which was made in the Recesso department ot their Pinnox factory.

It features a red and blue mottled glaze, which was produced using a method of firing lead oxides, a method that was banned after 1947 due to the detrimental health effects on workers during the manufacturing process.

Ricardia ware is rarely found on the open market and as such is considered to be an unusual find.

It is in good display condition but does have a hairline crack running down one side, and also some crazing to the glaze. There are also some minor surface scratches to the glaze from previous use but this is really just an indication of age. Despite these flaws the item still displays beautifully and would make a nice addition to your collection. Any bright white marks to the main body of the vase are due to light reflection.

Size and Weight

Size - 13.3cm (5.25 inches) high.

Weight - 380g


Stamped to the base with Ricardia Ware markings (as shown in the attached photograph for your reference).
