Fowler Ware jug [sold]

Fowler Ware jug,
made in Australia 1930s

Fowler Ware created industrial pottery in Glebe, Sydney commencing in the 1840s. After WWI, Fowler Ware moved to producing pottery for the domestic market : their graduated pudding bowls & jugs were so popular that they opened a second pottery to cope with the demand.

This is a blue and white striped jug from the 30s; the blue and white colours resembled English Cornish Ware and were the premium pieces produced in the 20s and 30s. Every day pieces- ‘Cream Ware’ were made under the Fowler’ Utility’ label, while the blue and white pieces- coffee pots, pudding bowls and jugs- have a Fowler Ware & Sons backstamp.

This jug appears never to have been used: it is pristine inside and out. Quite a rare find.

The Fowler Ware jug is for sale: $AU75

Delfts Blue

Delfts Blue salt & pepper shakersDelfts Blue salt and pepper shakers
made in The Netherlands 1960s

I don’t know much about Delfts Blue or the mad keen community that collects it, but when I saw this pair of salt and pepper shakers- hand painted, with DB marked on the base, I snapped them up.

This is souvenirware from the 60s- I found through research- made in The Netherlands. The shakers, made to resemble a traditionally dressed Dutch man & woman, also came in windmills, clogs, tulips and other stereotypical Dutch garb. They are quite crudely made and painted but I gather that is part of their vintage charm.

The shakers come with their original stoppers, and look never to have been used- they are in excellent condition. And they are for sale: $AUD45
