This large Shelley Harmony Ware wall charger is decorated with a fabulous Art Deco sunburst design-the pattern being 8823A, the A standing for Amber colourway. The way it was decorated was that the powdered colours were mixed with turpentine and then applied. The piece was then spun on a wheel with the centripetal force spreading the glaze. The distance achieved depended on the consistency of the glazes, and the dispersion could also be stopped by the decorators breathing on the glaze. While I would hesitate to use the word unique, each piece would be different, and with the glazes flowing over the ribbed body further interest is added to the piece. Harmony ware was very popular when it was released in the early 1930's and fitted nicely into the Art Deco movement. This wall plaque is in very good condition and would date from around 1940-2. It measures 360 mm (14.25 inches) in diameter.
