  • We offer this rare and stunning antique Arts & Crafts handled vase designed by Dr Christopher Dresser for Watcombe and dating from between 1878 and 1883. This finely made small sized red ‘porcelain’ vase is of rounded bulbous shape with a slender neck and a wide rimmed bowl shaped top with a loop handle attaching between the body and the neck. The vase is decorated in a light speckled robin egg blue glaze with unpainted natural red glazed elements. The body has a painted design of typical Dresser style around the body in dark red and yellow and the vase has been painted a rich plum colour to the inside. The vase is marked WATCOMBE PORCELAIN to the base along with a painted number and various other marks. A stunning and rare example and a wonderful addition to any serious collection. One of several choice pieces we are offering by Christopher Dresser!
