Light, voluminous, summer’s day clouds are carried along by a gentle breeze in this beautifully delicate, ethereal design. Fresco Sky is an ode to Antonio Verrio’s great mural ceiling above the King’s Staircase at Hampton Court Palace.
Whilst this vast scene was designed in a classical style, featuring iconography associating King William III with Alexander the Great, Hercules, and Apollo, the Cole & Son hand has ensured that its timeless inspiration is kept airy and bright.
Khulu, meaning ‘most important’, is particularly apt for this grand design featuring classical vases entwined with leopards, parrots, lions and other African animals. This fabulous watercoloured motif pays tribute to these modern day collectable vessels which can be found in galleries and private collections around the world.
Printed to an impressive 68.5cm repeat, the design is offered in various colourways including soft pinks and oranges on pale cream, a host of China blues on ivory, vivid greens and charcoal on ivory and finally a dramatic petrol and emerald on midnight blue.
