Does this type of pottery have a particular name? Empty Does this type of pottery have a particular name?

Many potteries made this type of ware from the 1930's 40's and 50's.
There is no glaze on these pieces, just paints and lacquers.
Most of the early potteries made ware like this that was decorated by hand or using stencils.

Does this style have a particular name?
I didn't know where to ask this question, so hope it's ok in here.

Many thanks, Ev

It looks to be low fired commercial earthenware. I think, but am happy to be corrected, that the pieces were biscuit fired and then painted and not fired again. So technically they could be called cold painted pottery.

These vases were used for flowers and were once high fired and were not porous.

This is a different process to most pottery and would have been a cheaper alternative to firing twice when glazing.

Not wanting people to try to come up with a name for this process, I was hoping that the potteries used a term that people knew of.
Perhaps adverts from the times would state this?

Thanks for responding :D

I've been looking on the net and have found these called Decorated Blanks.
A pottery, eg Howard Pottery Co made the blanks and then they were decorated with stencils and hand paintings and were sold as Brentleigh Ware, Ballina for example.
Adverts for these turned up.
Not sure if Ballina was a company that decorated the ware or if it was the name of the style.
Very interesting and will try to find out more when time permits.

I've seen the term "cellulose lacquer" used, e.g. this from a trade publication of 1932:
"CELLULOSE LACQUERS IN THE POTTERY TRADE . - The makers of Brentleigh ware, the Howard Poitery Company, of Stoke-on-Trent , are now successfully employing a cellulose finish upon their biscuit pottery shapes".

Indeed, early Sylvac used the same process, Correctly SylvaC, the C
standing for cellulose.

Are there any marks on the base, a possibility it might be made by the Brentleigh Pottery.

Thanks, but I know who made this vase, I am trying to find out what the decorating technique was called.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions and I had heard that they were decorated using cellulose lacquers before, so we are on the right track.
This technique appears to have stopped being used in a big way after the 2nd World War.
