“Down Under” Ceramics Make Debut at Long Beach Flea Market Today

Diana Pottery of Sydney c.1940’s 6.5″ Art Deco Pitcher, $110.00

Over thirty-five Vintage and antique vases, bowls, plates and other ceramic items from Australia are being offered by Billy Blue Eye Pottery for the first time today at the Long Beach Antique and Collectible Market.  The collection, which has taken over twelve months to amass, is a very good representation of what the Australian Ceramic community has offered in the last eighty years.

Modern Ceramic Pottery of Sydney c.1946-57 9.5″ x 4.5″ Art Deco Wall Pocket, $150.00, SOLD

There are examples from fifteen Pottery Companies including Diana Pottery, Pates Pottery and Trent Artware all of Sydney; the renown John Campbell & Sons Pottery, McHugh Brothers Pottery and Port Arthur Pottery of Tasmania and Bennetts Pottery of Adelaide, South Australia. Included in this collection are a number of vases that display the beautiful color mixing and drip glaze techniques first introduced by John Campbell in the early part of the 20th Century. The depth of color obtained can only be truly enjoyed in person as the play with light on the surface of the item also changes its’ visual perception.
