Made during the Calvert and Lovatt period, (1885-1890) this fine quality vase is from a line of superior Art Pottery produced at the Langley Mill Pottery in Derbyshire, England at the end of the 19th century. It was made from Derbyshire stoneware clay. It has a cobalt glazed neck and a "dimpled" gray-blue body decorated with enamels and touches of gold. It stands 8-1/4" high.
The marks on the base read: Lovatt Langley Mill England LEADLESS GLAZE Patent No. 8687 .
Condition? The lip of this vase has been repaired, and the repair is visible. Please see ENLARGED photos 7 and 8. I'm sure it could be repaired invisibly. No other problems.
PLEASE NOTE: the body of the vase is more gray than blue. The lighting in some of the photos makes it look more blue than it is. The neck is a very dark cobalt blue.
