This is a wardle vase marked England. I think the vase is mystical theme,maybe the three graces. I have never seen one like it. Anyone have an opinion?

    I don't know, but after a glass of the Evan Williams back there I think my head would be clear enough to figure it out! ;)

    Art and bourbon. It's a southern approach to art appreciation .

    I'd go for the Three Graces too. Really nice use of the glaze. The early morning colors or is it evening are wonderful! The clever portrait of the Graces suggests a moulded addition to the pot or is it entirely moulded. Could you give some more detailed photos?
    Thanks so much for showing it. While looking around I found out that they did wares for Liberty & Co. i saw a vase shape that resolved a thirty year mystery for me. There are also connections with George Jones and his majolicas. The impressed mark suggests after 1891.

    According to marks4antiques the mark was used between 1871-1935, and they were based in Hanley, Staffordshire. They were acquired by Cauldon and used as their Art pottery division.
    It is beautiful!

    Vetraio50, I didn't read your comment, but you were correct on the date. The word "England" was added in 1871
