An oval Royal Doulton Art Nouveau vase by Maud Bowden


This 6.5" (26.5cm) Royal Doulton vase dates stylistically from the late 1920s. The ceramic artist was Maud Bowden, a very experienced Senior Assstant at Doultons who worked for them from about 1903 to 1937.

This vase has all the flowing lines of the Art Nouveau period - it is an amalgam of different curves. The vase has the impressed Doulton Circle Mark with Crown and Lion, and the incised monogram of Maud Bowden. The shape is one of the 'New Style' Doulton Ware vase shapes launched in about 1912, which appear on pages 217 and 218 of Desmond Eyles' 'The Doulton Lambeth Wares', but the applied floral shapes would indicate a later date for this design - the 1920s?

It is in perfect condition, with absolutely no chips, cracks, crazing or restoration.
