This lustre vase was manufactured at the Empire Works, Shelton (Hanley), Stoke-on-Trent, England, which was in business from 1896-1967. It stands a tall 11" high by 5" in diameter. It has a great hexagonal form. It is glazed in a rich oil-spotted purple lustre glaze, with a glossy sheen. The oil-spot effect is much more pronounced in the photos, just the camera's eye. This vessel is well marked on the base, dating it to c1930s. It is in factory original condition, no apologies. This wonderfully executed lustre vase is a perfect example of English pottery of the period.
