Absolutely beautiful Arts and Crafts pottery vase, signed to the base (I have photographed, but I could not read), hand thrown and hand painted. I have to say I love this vase, sadly it does not fit the style of my Victorian home, it has an elegant simplicity that needs to grace a late Edwardian through 1930's house, where it will be a shining star.
The vase is a good size at approx 9" tall by 8" wide, it has a bulbous form with very clear internal striations from the potters wheel. The surface of the vase has been lightly scored to give a fruit pattern, the main body is finished in black with a subtle dappling in gold, and then the fruits have been glaze in soft greens and yellows, and some are outlined in old gold. The design is elegant, minimal and very period, I photographed the vase from a number of angles to show the flowing design, just beautiful.
Shipping is an estimate, this is a very heavy piece, if it comes in lower I will be happy to refund.
