Ellis Pottery – Cannister with Cork Lid



Handmade in Melbourne, Australia by a couple who emigrated out from Czechoslovakia. Ellis Pottery was set up in 1953 and operated until the late 1970’s. This cannister with a hand cut and fitted cork lid were part of a kitchen benchtop set originally purchased in 1969. There is no damage. Bright orange & brown with just a touch of blue in the drip glaze. Currently back in vogue along with all things retro. Cannister measures 13cm high.
