A slender necked vase in a blue trickle glaze made by Aultcliff Pottery England. William Ault set up his pottery in Swadlingcote, Staffordshire, in 1887 when he left Bretby at the age of forty-six. Ault was best known for his inventive use of coloured glazes. In 1923 the firm merged with the Ashby Potters' Guild, and became known as Ault and Tuncliffe.
