This vase measures 9" tall. It has a very narrow neck with a flare at the top. The neck is olive green, high gloss. The body is decorated with the Slater patented Chine' decoration. The background is yellow gold, the decoration is incised, applied, painted and gilded. This was developed by John Slater (manager of the Doulton's Burslem Pottery) in the 1880's. The distinctive feature is a textured netted background surface obtained by pressing moistened pieces of old point lace, linen, and other fabrics into the soft clay. This piece is marked with an x 6008 dating it to 1903-05. It has a Royal Doulton mark used 1902-22. There is a hn artist's mark for Nellie Harrison, an assistant artist. There is also an impressed 2318 and the words Doulton Slater Patent. The vase is in good condition. In examining the vase close, there appears to have been a repair (possibly professional) on the rim of the vase. Another repair to the ring on the base. Nice example of Chine' Ware.
