This Wardle England jardiniere stands 7.75" high by 8" in diameter. This jardiniere hails from the 1890s-early 1900s. Frederick Hurten Rhead was the art director of Wardle Pottery during this period, which predates his arrival in America (1902). This jardiniere is decorated with an intricate enamel pattern, which looks and feels like a lace pattern. It is glazed in a bisque-like textured ground, and very complementary pastel enamel colors in the lace work, and banded in a deep green rim, a handsome contrast of colors. It is signed Wardle England on the base, with its shape number '1668', the word 'Patent', and the artist initials 'A.W.B.'. This pot is in excellent condition, with a chip restoration to the rim band, and there is a factory clay seam, which shows on the side, which we show in the photos. Given its age, this jardiniere makes a very handsome presentation.
