A stunning 19thC Coalport vase decorated on a solid gilt ground with black flowers and leaves and with Japanesque black and white designs and inset with circular cartouches of black and white fans and motifs, a hare on the main fan. The vase is raised on three shaped feet and is banded to top and base of bowl with white enamelled and black banding. Towards the last quarter of the century, the rage in London was for all things Japanese, fanned by the first production of Gilbert and Sullivan's operetta The Mikado. Combining seamlessly with the taste of the Aesthetic Period, Coalport produced some of the finest ornamental wares of this period of which this vase is the perfect example. Green printed mark plus painted A3631 to base.
