About this object

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. The Ault and Tuncliffe mark was a fancy 'ATLTD' or the word 'Aultcliff'.
