- Quantity Available: 1
Arts and Crafts three piece garniture, by Christopher Dresser - Ault Pottery. Two large, tall side vases and a central large squat vase, all hand decorated with stylised acanthus scroll designs. Underneath the central vase is the impressed mark with Dressers signature and the Ault Pottery mark. Also the letters 146 (I think thats correct). This set has been illustrated in books on Dresser. A rare set. Dates to very early 20th century. Condition: One of the tall vases has a restored neck - this is an old restoration and has discoloured a bit with age. The actual work is excellent, but the colour of the mottled dusky dark mauve/brown shade of the vase has faded to a slightly mustard tinge (see photos). The other vase is excellent and unrestored. The central squat vase is all original also. It has a small shallow surface chip where there is a stress line at the point where the handles have been attached to the neck of the vase (top - see photo 4).
