With the success of tubelined designs produced at Moorcroft smaller companies tried to replicate their success with their own offerings. This pair of jardinières were made by Thomas Forrester & Sons, Longton, Staffordshire, c.1900.One design theme at this time was the influence of Japanese culture that can be seen here.The black collars on top rims are actually silver plated metal[I will not attempt to bring them back to original-the black works for me!] .Can you imagine strolling along a London street at the turn of the last century and seeing this beautiful pair of silver rimmed matte gold glazed jardinières in the window of a shop? They must have been quite striking! The interiors have a mustard yellow glaze that compliments the gold. They stand 4.24" H, and 9.25" W .
