THE QUEEN EMMA VASES BY THE ST LUKAS POTTERY
The pottery St Lukas was founded by two brothers-in-law in Utrecht in 1909.
In the beginning they made expensive pottery using luster glaze, the factory had to close in 1923 due to a lack of business.
In 1927 it started again on a smaller scale in the town of Maarssen. The products they made were a lot simpler using primary colours, they stopped making pottery altogether in 1933.
The pottery made in Utrecht was signed with St Lukas Utrecht Holland, the pottery made in Maarssen is stamped with Maarssen, Made In Holland.
Here are two rare vases made by the factory in 1928 for Queen Mother Emma’s 70th birthday. They were made in several different colours.
