Presented for sale is an incredible 1830-40 Coalbrookdale style bottle vase with cover, heavily encrusted with flowers. This form was produced at the Derby Factory around 1830, however, the flower encrustation is more typical of the work found at Coalport in the Coalbrookdale style. What is more certain however, is that the floral encrustation is nothing short of extraordinary. One can study this piece for hours and see a different foliage every time. It is literally covered in the most beautifully formed flowers possible. The pieces are so crisp and well-defined that it defies artistic boundaries. It makes one wonder who could possibly have taken the time to form and paint such splendor.
This bottle belongs in a cabinet to be admired for another 200 years as it has been lovingly cared for throughout its life. It is still in very good condition with only a few minor restorations noticed along with some firing flaws. The top, once removable, has been glued to the piece. In our opinion, it needs to be left alone as is, to avoid falling and being damaged.
This is a rare and magnificent piece for the collector of English floral encrusted ceramics.
Size: 15 ¾” Height.
