O is for Oriflamme

O is for Oriflamme.

Oriflamme was a range of decorative art pottery made by the Wilkinson's Royal Staffs Pottery. Designed and sometimes signed by John Butler. They have a marbled flame effect to the glazing that was applied through cotton wool fibre to create a swirling effect. Sometimes seen with fish swimming and with gilded patterns.
