Minton Secessionist Art Nouveau Tubelined Primula Pottery Vase by J Wadsworth (Code 1602)
A large Art Nouveau period Minton vase in the 'primula' pattern. Minton's range of Art Nouveau decorative ware was termed Secessionist after the very late 19th century Austrian movement housed in the Vienna Künstlerhaus. Some of the Secessionist range did have a more Germanic look, and you can perhaps see that reflected in the leaves on this vase, but in other respects it does perhaps more follow the French Nouveau style. The vase was designed by John Wadsworth who worked with the world famous Leon Solon at Minton. This piece dates c1910 and is a large example with a waisted body. The decoration is tubelined and the glazes are heavily applied. Minton Secessionist printed mark to the underside.
Final image for scale, sadly the Heinz doesn't come with the vase.
Very good order, glazes and decoration somewhat haphazardly applied as is usual for the Secessionist range. Minor glaze pops and kiln frit from firing.
