Product Details

  • We offer this stunning Arts & Crafts red clay lidded carafe and stand attributed to Watcombe and designed, we believe, by Christopher Dresser dating from around 1880. This finely made carafe and stand are made from a matted red clay, the carafe of bottle shape with a rounded bulbous body and tall slender neck with a fitted cover with an acorn shaped finial. The carafe comes with its original stand which is of simple rounded plate shape. The body of the carafe is simply decorated with a yellow and blue coil design set within a white stipple border on a blue ground with simple black lines painted top and bottom. Similar designs are applied around the neck, the cover and the stand which also has a black painted rim and glazed base. None of the components are marked.
