Possibly Unique Carlton Ware Walking Ware Running Eggcup - Sold

Stock No. 290 

A possibly unique Carlton Ware Lustre Pottery running eggcup from the Walking Ware RJS series, designed by Roger Michell for CarltonWare and Lustre Pottery.These running eggcups were produced with a white / cream body see "Walking Ware A Collectors Guide" by Julia Michell pages 34 & 71 (book is available from us - use the link to the left) - But this example has a blue body!
It is either a trial piece or a special commission. We have never seen another one. The blue body has been sprayed and stamped before the glazing and firing and thus both colour and semi-circular Carlton Ware Lustre Pottery backstamp are underneath the fired glaze (see 2nd image above) - indicating that this was made in the Carlton Ware factory and is definitely not a fake.
This eggcup was found after the final proofs for the Walking Ware book had been agreed - so just missed being included in the publication
Condition is very good with no damage or repair. Some unobtrusive crazing.
