Trickle glaze - what is it?
Among 1950's collectibles enthusiasts there's a lot of interest in trickle glazed items - mainly vases and animal figurines. The trickle glazing technique was first used at Ambrico in the late 1930s and refined through the 1940s. A single colour of glaze was applied to an item - eg this vase below. Then another colour was applied - as you can see, it was sort of slopped on. Sometimes another colour was added. The effects are often quite lovely.
