Daisy Makeig-Jones’s lustrewares brought the Wedgwood factory out of a creative slump in the early 20th century, and they brought consumers an escape from the horrors of World War I. After introducing her Ordinary Lustres in 1914, Makeig-Jones soon went on to produce the more elaborate Fairyland Lustres. This lively bowl seems to lie at the intersection of these lines. Not quite an Ordinary Lustre and not quite Fairyland Lustre, this bowl with an underwater sea scene is likely a transition piece between the artist’s two stylistic periods.⁠
