This rare and highly important, large Wedgwood bowl is crafted in the beloved Fairyland Lustre style. One of the very desirable Octagonal bowls, this piece features the Woodland Elves VIII - Boxing Match motif on the interior, while the exterior exhibits Castle On a Road panels, Framed by a Cobble border. Wondrous colors and hand-painted details make this bowl a true masterpiece of Wedgwood artistry. Boxing Match is the last of the Woodland Elves family of designs, created especially for the inside of the largest Octagon bowls in 1917. Named Dana, this series of Octagonal designs became the most popular of all Fairyland Lustre items. An almost identical bowl is featured on page 157 of Wedgwood Fairyland Lustre by Una des Fontaines.

Introduced by Wedgwood artist Daisy Makeig-Jones in 1915, Fairyland Lustre marked a true departure from the factory's history of classic design and subdued color with its fiery hues and fanciful subjects. Fairyland Lustre wares were well received and the range of works produced during the 1920s was remarkable. Makeig-Jones retired in 1931, ending the reign of Fairyland Lustre. Today, these works are extremely rare and highly sought after by collectors.

The bowl bears the "Portland Vase" Wedgwood England mark and the pattern #Z5125

Circa 1925
