The slip cast molded vase with a bulbous base and wide fluted flared rim, applied with high relief berries, foliage and branches, with a silver lustre glaze. Overall a delightful highly collectible piece, we believe!

Date
1840 -1860.

This has been made on the Continent, probably by on of the several German potteries that made this ware. I can't make out the initials under the applied clay mark. The number 140 is in the center but otherwise, quite illegible.

This particular vase is very elaborate and has a silver lustre painted onto the high relief parts.

In the early 19th century potters devised a new glazing technique. By coating stoneware with a "smear" of glaze so thin it did not obscure surface decoration, they were able to produce wares with ornate relief designs that remained sharp while reflecting a soft, attractive sheen.

Size : 20.5 cm. ( 8 5/64" ) tall , top's diameter : 12 cm. ( 4 23/32" ).

Weight : 838 g. ( 1 lb. 13 1/2 oz. ).

Condition : very good - note, a leaf lobe on three different leaves on one lower side has suffered a chip - please see the third bottom photograph - only to be seen upon close examination! Some minor crazing to the vase's interior.
