DECO SHAPED CREAMER WITH STYLISH BANDED
DECORATION, JOHNSON BROTHERS STAFFORDSHIRE
"This super cool Johnsons
Brothers art deco creamer jug is classic art deco style. Great shape,
sophisticated, restrained colours, subtle silver-resist banded
decoration and so very 'contemporary'. If you appreciate deco design
then just look at the pictures for this and enjoy. The globular body,
stepped handle and pointy-pinched spout are a triumph of shape and
form. Just great mate!"
- References: The potting
quality of Johnson Brothers art deco period production ranks among
the very best. The clear cut lines and complimentary restrained
decoration were highly thought of in design circles during the
1920s and 1930s. With Johnson Brothers art deco less is definitely
more. The Studio (1936) critical review of ceramics
production recognised the modernist designs of Johnson Brothers
for high artistic values and principles in the machine-age: "their
aim is to produce earthenware bodies of fine texture and colour...
to encourage decoration in printing, lithography and stamping
which will show a real appreciation of these more mechanised
techniques and enable the artist to produce honest work... not the
'mass production' travesties of hand-painting to which one is
accustomed." The renown ceramic artist designer Gordon Forsyth was
also a great fan, praising Johnson Brothers as an "outstanding
example of excellent cheap production."
- Dimensions: width 115
mm max. height 63 mm max.
- Marks: to base as
illustrated below. "Victorian" may be the shape range. Difficult
to imagine a more inappropriate title for a piece like
- Condition: Excellent
condition for display with good fresh looking decoration. There
are no chips, cracks, hairlines, staining or restoration. Minute
specs of wear to silver resist bands around rim/spout of jug. Very
difficult to spot without a magnifying glass. It does not spoil
the display-attractiveness of this piece at all.
