Shaw & Copestake (aka SylvaC), a factory established by William Shaw and William Copestake in 1894, was given the name Shaw & Copestake. However, William Copestake quit the company midway through the first year allowing Mr. Richard Hull to become William Shaw’s business partner in 1895.
SylvaC is most renowned for its ornate molded clay products, including animals, vases, jugs, and wall pockets. The styling of several SylvaC goods is distinctively Victorian/early twentieth century while being made during the Art Deco period.
Many of their earlier pieces are high sought-after and collectible, including their range of jardinieres, planters and vases.

A stunning collection of three pieces from the Swan series. Just, wow!
All pieces in great to excellent vintage condition. The only wear to mention is a small amount of crazing visible on the swans (being white), the swan on the larger vase has a small chip on the tail backend and the swan on the jardiniere has what looks be a fine hairline around the neck.
Very minor flaws that don't detract from the beauty of this set.
Measuring approx 10cm tall (small vase), 15cm tall (large vase) and 19.5cm long x 12cm wide x 8cm tall (planter).
Based on the backstamp we can date these to the early 1950s.
Sold as a set.
