Availability: In stock

A fine quality earthenware bulbous vase or guglet. Black ‘Jackfield’ type glaze with transfer printed outline design which has then been hand-enamelled in a polychrome palette. The scene on each side is different but both include a bird, a butterfly and flowers with grasses. Gold gilding lines around rim and above foot as well as a little on the flowers. Turned recessed base which has an enamelled fractional number painted on: “4” over “4922”.
Current research lays waste to the previous attribution of these wares to Dudson. The latest contender is Ridgways, Bedford Works, Shelton, Hanley (1879-1920). They used fractional number marks on their wares.
Made in Staffordshire c.1870-1890.
