Antique Aesthetic Movement Large Pottery Covered Vase in the Japanese Taste (Code 2162)
A very attractive and large Aesthetic Movement covered vase. It has an oatmeal ground with cranes, prunus blossom and bamboo decoration. There are also gilt bands with black designs ans turquoise lining. Given the size and quality of the item is is perhaps a little unusual that it does not carry the makers name, however during the 1870's when this item was likely produced this was not uncommon. It is almost certainly English in origin, and the large size and decorative quality suggests it was from one of the leading factories of the period. A fine looking piece, plenty large enough to make a statement.
Knop to lid detached and neatly glued back. Minor wear to gilt, some restrained crazing.
Height: 43 cm (16 7/8 inches) including lid
