- Lustreware refers to a metallic glaze that gives an effect of iridescence, produced by metallic oxides in an overglaze finish. It became popular with the advent of gaslights, which accentuated the iridescent finish. Lustreware was often used as a centrepiece at parties or to add sparkle to a dark dresser

About Welsh Otter Vintage: We love the traditional Welsh farmhouse look, and know how a touch of vintage pottery or furniture can really add a wow factor. The trouble is - good vintage pieces can be hard to find without trawling antique shops and endless websites. We have put together our Vintage range of gorgeous pre-loved treasures, to help you add that little bit of uniqueness to your home. Each item is hand-picked to work well with the other items on our website. Many items are Welsh items, others are sourced in Wales but may have been made in other areas of the UK originally. But one thing is for certain - each item has a story and a history.
