I am selling an unusual late 19th century square shaped English porcelain vase that is signed Doulton Burslem on the base. Commonly this form was used as a base for biscuit barrels most commonly with silverplated lids. Here the interior edge of the vase is straight down with no flange to support a lid, and the top is finished with cobalt on the exterior and mottled gold on the interior so it was made to be used as a vase.
The piece is decorated with their Persian Spray pattern over the tapestry textured porcelain. It is about 5-1/4” square, 5-3/4” high, and the inner diameter of the top is 3-3/4”. As seen in the photos the porcelain is discolored and there is crazing. There is also a scrape on one side near the base. There are no chips or hairline cracks in the porcelain.
Feel free to contact me with any questions regarding the item or pricing. Ruby Lane allows for up to nine photographs so please be sure to scroll through all the using the arrows on the large photo. Some may not be shown in the thumbnail shots below the large photo. Thank you for looking at my listings.
