Pair of Mid 19th C Pilgrim Flask Form Turquoise Minton Vases

Presented for sale is a magnificent matched pair of circa 1870 era Minton turquoise ground Pilgrim-flask form vases with serpent handles. The vases are decorated in polychrome enamels in the Asian Aesthetic Movement style and are attributed to Christopher Dresser (1834 – 1904).

Christopher Dresser was a Scottish designer who was a pivotal figure in the Aesthetic Movement, which incorporated a lot of Anglo Japanese motifs. From 1860 onward, Dresser created many designs for firms such as Minton, Wedgwood, and Royal Worcester. Although he is considered amongst the most influential ceramic designers of the 19th century, much of his work remains to be identified and is only attributable.

The vases are in mint condition with little to no loss of gilt or enamel. Impressed "MINTON" mark and date mark for 1847 visible on one of the bases as shown.

Size: 7 ¾" Height.
