DECO POTTERY ROYAL WINTONCHINTZ JUG, GLOBE
SHAPE WITH SUMMERTIME PATTERN C.1932-35
lovely early Grimwades Royal Winton Ware art deco jug with all over
chintz Summertime pattern. This round Paris shape
style jug and matching range of pieces, was known as the Globe
shape by Royal Winton. The pattern number for Summertime
with gold trim is 775 and was first introduced in 1932. Summertime
was the second mainstream, marketed, chintz pattern to be introduced by
Grimwades following the success of Marguerite. A lovely collectable
example of early pre-war Grimwades Royal Winton chintz Staffordshire
English cottage chintz style from Royal Winton was produced from circa
1925-1960 when this form of all over multicoloured lithographic
decoration was an extremely popular product line with a number of
Staffordshire makers. This despite the painstaking and skilled way
these 'paper' pattern sheets had to be cut out and applied by hand to
all manner of blank white pottery shapes. Royal Winton chintz style is
considered by collectors to be among the very best.
