Fine Wedgwood Fairyland Lustre Butterfly Women Vase by Daisy Makeig Jones c1920 (Code 2125)
This example is of the 'Butterfly Women' pattern with the 'cobble bead' base. There are birds around the rim, and the interior is in pale lustre with playfull imps and the 'green leaf' border. The Wedgwood code for this design is Z4968 which is scripted to the base and it dates around 1920. This trumpet vase was made in three sizes, this example is the tallest form with 6" and 8" versions also produced. The ground is a very dark midnight blue, but under strong lighting it comes alive with brushed strokes of petrol iridescence which seem to shimmer as you hold and view the piece. This example has particularly good colour and iridescence
A near identical example is held at the Museum of St. Petersburg, Florida, USA. A smaller 8" version sold at Bonhams, Knightsbridge in September 2019 for reference.
A fine example, no damage or restoration, minimal wear.
