Wedgwood Fairyland Lustre Ghostly Wood
Wedgwood Fairyland Lustre Ghostly Wood
Monumental and extraordinarily rare, this covered Malfrey pot from Wedgwood's immensely popular Fairyland Lustre line features the ethereal and eerie Ghostly Wood pattern against a pale blue sky. Arguably the single most important design from the Fairyland Lustre line, Ghostly Wood pieces of this size and impeccable condition are incredibly rare on the market, with the majority of the existing pieces being held in important museum collections around the world. Executed in bold colors and enhanced by an innovative iridescent lustre glaze, the inventive design epitomizes the incredible technical and creative superiority of this celebrated line of porcelain from Wedgwood. The dreamlike Fairyland line sprang from the imagination of one designer, Daisy Makeig-Jones, and her fantastical world continues to enchant collectors today.
