Whilst sorting through and filing old photographs, I came upon this collection of ceramics by Wilfred Norton RA (1880-1973). These were acquired over twelve years ago now, the circumstances, I quite forget. However over the years, many people have found the images online and asked if they were still for sale. I love the angular – and lustre that is almost metallic – feel to these pieces, usually depicting Mythological or Religious figures, which have immense presence and depth of meaning – they scream the thirties!

A large and impressive pair of Japanese Imari floor vases with covers. Decorated by hand in the traditional palette of cobalt blue with iron red and ground gold. The covers have dogs of foo finials. The vases are unusual in their scale. They are completely chip free, but there is evidence of an old repair to a foo dog finial. . .
