This superb Wedgwood porcelain pillar vase is an extraordinary example of the company's magnificent Fairyland Lustre line. Exhibiting fiery colors and scenes from a fantastical world, Fairyland Lustre pieces are among the most coveted Wedgwood porcelain. This vase is beautifully hand-painted on every surface, with the lush Torches and Tree Serpent patterns encasing the exterior. In the imaginative design, two torches light the way along a curving stairway to a shining white palace, while a dragon-headed snake inches up a tree toward a nest of helpless birds Completed by a fiery pattern encircling the base, this vase flawlessly illustrates the heights that Fairlyland artistry reached.

First envisioned by Wedgwood artist Daisy Makeig-Jones in 1915, the Fairyland line was vastly different from the factory's usual repertoire of neoclassical designs and subdued colors. Makeig-Jones' work was rooted in fairytales, and her designs burst with brilliant colors, coming alive with scenes of nymphs, elves and fairies romping through enchanted forests and make-believe lands. Makeig-Jones retired in 1931, ending the reign of Fairyland, though today these works remain highly sought after by collectors.
