Carlton Ware ‘Wild Rose’ Jug
made in England, c. 1940s
Did I mention, once or twice, that I am drawn to botanical themes? That I might have collected a bit of it due to being a landscape architect? Well- here’s proof positive. A beautiful Carlton Ware ‘Wild Rose’ jug- # 1696 [#16 for the green background, and #96 for the jug] – in great condition with nary a scratch or a nick.
The rest of the malarkey in the image is my fondness for ‘styling’…but I do like to mix vintage pieces with contemporary, in a new context. Because these retro pieces have to find a new way of being in the contemporary home…and this is how I do it. You might do it differently…and if so, I would love to see how/why. It would be great if you sent me an image of how you incorporate these pieces into your life.
For sale: $AUD45
