Product Details

  • Originating from a private collection we are pleased to offer this fine early 20th century Carlton Ware lidded tobacco jar decorated with Chinese pagodas on a blue ground and made by Wiltshaw & Robinson. The heavily made earthenware conical shaped jar stands on a narrow rounded foot and has a well fitted cover with a rubber seal and with a recessed centre with a ball handle. The body of the jar is decorated in a powder blue ground and over hand painted in brightly coloured enamels with a pagoda to one side and with a smaller scene with a boat, cranes and a bridge in the Chinese style to the opposite side. The lid too is decorated with a scene of water birds under a tree with finely applied gilding around the edges and incorporated into the painted decoration. The jar has a black printed Wilshaw & Robinson mark as used from around 1894 to 1927 and is also numbered.
