Carlton Ware Walking Ware Easter Egg Cup & Cover - Sold

Stock No. 302 

An attactive Carlton Ware Lustre Pottery Walking £are Easter Egg cup and cover - an amusing parody of the world famous Faberge Easter Eggs. This was one of the "Special" walking ware items designed by Roger Michell as an Easter gift circa 1980 for Carlton Ware.
Decorated as an Easter Egg with green spots and a striped green bow standing on yellow feet, the cover surmounted by a yellow chick with splayed legs straddling the top, this Easter Egg cup and cover is one of the more scarce of the walking ware "Specials" produced in that period.
Printed combined semi-circular mark to the base of a foot for Carlton Ware and Lustre Pottery. Excellent condition.
