Tonight I thought I’d share a few pictures of some Essexware mugs I currently have listed on eBay..
Now without going into to much detail Essexware was a ‘brand’ of pottery dating from the late 1940’s through until 1957 when unfortunately their buildings/studio’s were burnt down during bush fires. The owners decided to return home to England after losing everything and cease creating these beautiful pieces of pottery which has ultimately lead to Essexware becoming so collectable.
If you look at the mugs above they are beautifully decorated with Aboriginal scenes and art and although the colours are not overly bright, they combine so well to really make the images stand out. All of this was hand painted of course!
For more detailed information on Essexware I highly recommend visiting 2 blogs I found during my research. The first being http://essexwareponderings.wordpress.com/ whilst the second is http://www.rameking.blogspot.com.au/2012/02/essexware.html
