A small - 16cm - Royal Doulton Art Deco stoneware vase in pastel colours by Winnie Bowstead.
It is hard to tell the age of works by Winnie Bowstead as she worked for Doulton for 51 years. Apart from the monogram of Winnie Bowstead, this vase has the Doulton Circle mark with Crown, dating it for certain to post-1922. The colour scheme is rare, a soft purply blue with pink flowers and pale green leaves. The most likely date for the vase is 1930s.
The vase is in mint condition with no cracks, chip, crazing or restoration.
