When I saw this awesome Art Deco art piece from Victoria and Albert Museum I love it.
This cup and saucer were designed in 1930 by Shelley Art Director, Eric Slater, who studied under Gordon Forsyth, an advocate of improvement in industrial design. Slater's 'Vogue' shape was very modern and made from finely-turned high quality bone china. The conical cups with solid triangular handles were matched with a range of dynamic Art Deco patterns. The 'Sunray' was one of the most successful patterns and is now highly-prized by collectors.
Find them in Factory Ceramics, room 140.
