Early Wedgwood Blue & White Transfer Vase - "Chinese" - Transferware - Transfer Ware

This lovely vase is one of a small collection of Wedgwood blue and white transfer I was lucky enough to find recently.

The color is dark and assertive, contrasting dramatically with the white ground. The pattern pictures ships, pagodas. palms, and other romantic elements. Oriental motifs were favorite subjects of early transferware. This piece is labeled "Chinese" on the bottom, indicating the pattern named "Chinese Baroque," that was introduced in the 1830's.

There are discernible, impressed marks as well as the transfer printed marks. The "WEDGWOOD" mark is clear enough, and there appears to be a date mark, running through the "WE" in the transfer printed "WEDGWOOD". As best I can make out, it reads "3 _ P", which would indicate a 1913 date I believe. Sorry, but I just can't make out the middle letter, it's too filled up with glaze.

Condition is as good as it gets, no chips, cracks, hairlines, or repairs that I can see. This early piece of Wedgwood transfer stands 6" tall, measures 4 3/16" across the flaring top.

Much less common than tableware, this pretty vase is perfect for a bunch of yellow spring tulips or a few full blown old fashioned garden roses. But it would also look just fine in a cabinet surrounded by your collection. Enjoy!
