A mint condition Doulton Lambeth example of the work of this creative genius. Butler like to show form with colour, and colour with form. In this example he did so by pushing out the brown foliate designs from the inside of the soft clay form, and then glazing them.
The 30cm (12in) vase has an impressed Doulton Lambeth mark with the word ‘ENGLAND’ underneath, dating the vase to the period 1892-1902. It also has the incised monograms of Frank Butler and his assistant, Bessie Newbery. The vase was numbered 2406 by Butler.
The vase weighs 1212g.
The vase is in mint condition, with no chips cracks, crazing restoration or significant scratches.
