Who said that George Tinworth when making vases, sang from only one hymn sheet? This lovely vase proves that he could be creative in both colour and pattern. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a beautiful and imaginative vase by the great man.
A 12in (30cm) Doulton Lambeth vase with a spiral ‘bat-wing’ design. The vase is signed near the base with a ‘GT’ monogram. Underneath it has the impressed Doulton Lambeth mark with the word ’ENGLAND’ (dating the vase to the period 1892-1902), and an assistant’s monogram MH. The vase weighs 1167g.
The vase had a chip to the top rim, and a 3cm hairline crack. These have been professionally and invisibly restored. The is also some ‘wear and tear’ damage to some of the beading.
