If you like George Tinworth, you will be bowled over by this one! We believe that it is in 100% free of any restoration. It has minor defects which we have described in our fuller description below. All of these, with the exception of the two minor defects on the grey beads, are from the original firing. All-in-all it is a stunning example of the work of the imaginative genius that any serious collector would be very proud to own. It is a BIG vase dimensionally and emotionally.
The 11.75in (29cm) vase has the impressed Doulton Lambeth mark with the date 1875. It is signed with the ‘GT’ monogram on the base rim. The vase is very heavy, and weighs 4067g.
This vase is magnificent treasure from the earliest period of Doulton’s production of decorative products. As the vase is so impressive in its original state the very minor defects present have not been touched. The vase is free of all restoration. The only damage is to two grey beads in the circle at the maximum diameter of the vase. The vase has a number of very minor defects. Kiln grit on the base rim, adjacent to the monogram (see photo No1). There are minor firing cracks in the glaze, and the grey vertical 'stiff leaves' have minor firing irregularities.
