This antique pottery vase is in a slip decorated marbled, or scroddled, glaze. The colors are green, brown, beige, and cream. It is not light weight like a Whieldon product, or like creamware or pearlware, even though the colors are similar. Although the glaze does have a slight crackle to it, like those early pieces. It is made as one piece, vase and stand together. Could be molded, but I do not see mold marks. I am assuming 19th century and English. Sometimes the Staffordshire potters used Chinese forms as their inspiration. Rarely do I list something that is not within my knowledge, but I really do not know the history of this piece. Appears to be hand made, antique, and English looking. Sometimes this type of slip decorated marbled glazes are referred to as scroddled. I have also seen it referred to as agate ware. You can see on the feet that the color of the clay is tan, like stoneware. Perfect condition, no chips, no lines, no repairs. A bit of crackle in the glaze. Size is 7.5 inches high. Base diameter 3.25 inches. This is an interesting piece of antique pottery, regardless of who made it. Am I correct in guessing Staffordshire region for the origin?
