This tiny little porcelain vase dates from the 1811-25 period. It was made in England by the Derby porcelain factory during the Bloor period. The Derby Porcelain Works commenced in 1750 under William Duesbury, later under the ownership of Robert Bloor and closed in 1848. The apple green body and oval hand painted cartouche immediately conjure warm spring days, the gentle buzz of the honey bee and the sound of birdsong. They were clever those early 19th century porcelain decorators.
This 4" high vase was modeled on the ancient Roman amphora wine vases with the bulbous body, narrow neck and twin handles. The oval cartouche filled with a plethora of English flowers; roses, auricular, tulips and convolvulus, of course all individually hand painted. To the base we see the red Bloor Derby crown and the faint remains of the letter D (for Duesbury) which were used circa 1811-25.
Condition is very good being free from restoration, cracks or chips. However there is some minor rubbing to the gilding on the neck and base.
A pretty little concoction from the age of elegance that IS good enough to eat!
