As promised Oriflamme with a dragon, I think it has onglaze slip or enemals under the gilt to try and give it a 3D effect.

On these examples you will note that the Oriflamme is applied horizontally, with swirls etc towards the base, the blue one is signed by Ridgeway note the white enamels to give the wave crests. The green one is by John Butler, and has the waves outlined in gilt and stars in the sky to try and cover blow holes in the glaze from previous firings.

The range is Rubaiyat, the vase on the left is the most common found (but not often), the vase in the centre is only the 2nd I know to have Iris flowers in the design, the vase on the right has Crocus flowers and I know of one other in Australia.

were transfers used on this range?

Dan the 3 wilkinson miniatures are all Tibetan, I have been lucky enough to buy 5, a miniature in pink with a letter saying it was a gift from Clarice Cliff saw it fetch 600 + fees at christies in 1988 or 1989, the larger ones fetch upto and sometimes over 1000 at christies!!

Rubaiyat is always entirely handpainted as are the oriental ladies, these are generally over looked by the big auction houses and most dealers and collectors don't realise they are signed!!

No idea, I have a couple with the same impressed mark, Colley Shorter was known to have bought moulds and designs from other factories as they closed. This shape was part of the shape no.177 series of miniature vases on the 1924 shape sheet, 9 are illustrated but I have 14 different miniature vase shapes. If the mould was bought in then it could be the shape name used by the original manufacturer. Another possibility is that it was meant to have a translucent copper lustre glaze over the Oriflamme, without checking I think mine are opal with a copper coloured lustre finish.

As for 'stealing' the bowl, that was the sort of thing I was getting at in the ebay ending early thread, I start mine at the price I want or previousley paid, I sort of feel sorry for sellers of Oriflamme when I don't bid and it sells for a low price...LOL I am getting a bit bored of it now as there are not many special pieces turning up, I have been collecting it for 15 years and all I want to find now are the pieces I have read about in reviews of the 1924 Wembley exhibition.

Do you mean the Oriflamme Diane? 95% of Oriflamme has a special backstamp which includes the Patent number.

Hi Dan, no unfortunately, why have you been lucky enough to find one? If you have is it for sale? I do have a page from a magazine somewhere showing a vase as an award winner, and there is a set of cigarette cards from the 1920's that has 2 Wilkinson vases, 1 Oriflamme and 1 in Tibetan. I also have somewhere a photocopy of a review of the 1924 Wembley Exhibition where it mentions a vase so big it was made in 2 parts - in Oriflamme covered in Dragons - it was on a plinth in a central walkway, this has not been seen since the mid 1920's.
There was a catalogue in the Leeds Library archive but it is believed that because noone asked to view it for 3 years it was removed and sold, along with a lot of other items.
I do have a couple of late 1930's Crown Devon catalogues and a couple of Royal Doulton ones, but they are more easily found.

the most sought after Oriflame pieces are those with creatures added to the normal Oriflamme decor but are all these pieces seconds with the imperfections covered up?

here's what Clarice Cliff had to say

"In the early 1920's I had progressed as for as modelling in clay, keeping pattern and shape books up to date, very fine filigree gilding with a pen, tracing spiders webs, butterflies, etc., to hide small imperfections on expensive ware, at A. J. Wilkinson Limited, The Royal Staffordshire Pottery, Burslem. During this time I gained useful knowledge of the making and firing of pottery."
