Lustre and enamel goblet
Dimensions:H: 11.7cm (4.6")Di: 9cm (3.5")
A pink and copper lustre pottery goblet. This piece dates from c.1830. It is mostly covered in a copper lustre glaze and there is a band of pink lustre and enamelled flowers around the centre. This type of decoration was produced by the use of metallic oxides in the glaze. Both copper and pink lustre are produced by gold oxide. Where the glaze is on a terracotta body the result is the copper lustre and where the gold oxide is on a white background it produces the pink lustre. There is very slight flaking to the green enamel of the leaves but other than that the piece is in very good condition.
