RARE, EARLY, DOULTON LAMBETH HAND SCRIMMED ART NOUVEAU VASE. This is an early Art Nouveau stoneware vase designed by Francis C. Pope and decorated by Florrie Jones at the Lambeth factory dating, I would guess, to the first decade of the 20th. It is depicted in a shouldered tapering form with a trumpet neck and rim and decorated in a fine and intricate hand scrimmed images of a stylised floral motifs inside hand incised Art Nouveau / Celtic knots on a sponged blue / turquoise mottled ground. The base is stamped with the above mentioned Doulton Lambeth factory marks, as well as Pope’s and Jones’s monograms other incised marks – see photographs and details. It measures 10″ (26cm) H x 4″ (10cm) W approx; and is in excellent condition with no defect at all to report – see photographs and details. This is a wonderful rare early piece of period Doulton Lambeth stoneware which is in great condition and with a low start price should get considerable interest from all Doulton collectors.
