Globe Potteries were founded in the early 1920s and produced such domestic wares as vases, jugs, mugs, cups and saucers, teapots and bowls. Founded by Albert and John Walker, two brothers from England, the refractory was situated in New Muckleneuk, Pretoria, presently the site of the Bird Sanctuary. The clay came mainly from this area. Globe ware won gold medals at the Pretoria Show as early as 1923 and 1924. Douglas Portway worked there between 1949 and 1953 on a part-time basis and so did Esias Bosch, between 1953 and 1954. Globe produced a beautiful stylised boat-like vessel (probably a vase) that was frequently glazed in a speckled, liquid-blue or turquoise colour, such as the present lot. These boat-shaped pieces are among the most successful of the wares created.
