Tall English Arts & Crafts Aesthetic Ceramic Vase

Unavailable

This tremendous ceramic ( redware, stoneware or earthenware ) floor vase from the Arts and Crafts period, circa 1880-1900, features sgraffito incised floral and organic designs, the portrait of a maiden, exotic birds and applied ears in the Japanese style, characteristic of the British Aesthetic Movement of the late nineteenth century. It measures 38" high and 18" wide (96.5 and 45.7 cm). Its sgraffito technique and eclectic design which incorporates elements of British Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau and oriental style, suggest it may have been produced by, or after, Della Robbia of Chesire England. Unfortunately we have not found any hallmarks. Other possible makers include Burmantofts of Yorkshire England, or possibly a competitor influenced by Della Robbia or Burmantofts. The condition is excellent, with no visible signs of repair or restoration, and no vislble chips or cracks. There is a small area of white house paint roughly 1/2" across on the neck which can be removed. This item resides in our client's gallery on the Upper East Side of Manhattan in New York City and may be seen in person by appointment. Additional images forwarded upon request. ( hantiques )
