I recently bought this beautiful Doulton Lambeth pottery vase . it has a fantastic shape. This Foliage Ware vase has lovely design of ferns including Maidenhair fern . The designs are made with real ferns which are presssed onto the wet coloured salt glaze then fired, a technique invented by Douton in the 19th century. the Artist responsible for this vase is Jane Rumbol .
The vase has lovey tones of mottled greens and tans and whites and deeper brown fens.
Size :- 9 1/2 " High X 4 3/4 " Diametre .
Marks:- DOULTON LAMBETH mark , roo :- designers mark for Jane Rumbol ; RS :- initials of the potter.
I love this type of ware , one of Doultons potters came to Austalia in the late 19th century and made this foliage ware with gum (Eucalypt ) leaves from the bush outside the pottery (Mashmans ) . I was lucky to once own a piece . they are worth 10 times a Doulton one and are just as beautiful .
