A pair of Royal Doulton Art Nouveau 7.5" (19cm) vases by one of the most meticulous of Doultons ceramic artists - Jane Hurst - both in perfect condition.
These vases are part of a series of floral Art Nouveau Royal Doulton items all of which have a series number 7816, followed by various suffixes. These have the series number 7816N and the impressed Doulton mark with crown and lion. They aslo both have the incised monogram of Jane Hurst. They are not all-over high gloss, but the glaze is the same on both of them and the degree of gloss shows on the attached photos.
Interestingly these two have a spray of rose buds, as well as the normal fully open roses and leaves that are associated with this 7816 series.
The pink of the roses is not as strong on the vases as in the photos. They are perfect. They have no chips, cracks, crazing, restoration, or even scratches.
