A Romantic Vase From Bungay

£840.00 Sold out

This Romantic Vase depicts the town of Bungay.
Featuring the Buttercross Market and a boy running away from the Black Shuck.

Black Shuck is a folk tale of a black dog that roams the East Anglian countryside, and is said to have burst through the doors of Bungay Holy Trinity Church in 1577, past a congregation and killing a man and child.
Shuck is said to continue to haunt the Suffolk and Norfolk broads.

The main body is painted with a blue underglaze, with rutile yellow and pink highlights. The Acorns are decorated with a resist technique, which gives a lovely graphic feel, which contrasts nicely with the hand painted drawings.
The oak leaves, dot and line details are decorated with slip, to give a relief detail and to encase the paintings.

Please note: Wipe clean and never place into a dishwasher.

Approximate size: 18cm x 15cm x 8cm
