This 7" (17.5cm) Royal Doulton Stoneware vase dates from about 1912, when Doultons first started the mass production of a series of vases decorated by the means of pigment brush-lining. It was decorated by Bessie Newbery, one of the finest ceramic artists that Doultons ever had.
The vase has the impressed Doulton mark with crown and lion, and the series number 8002. It also has the incised monogram of Bessie Newbery and the impressed mark of Letitia Rosevear. The shape of this vase and a large collection of pigment brush-lined vases are shown on p217 of Desmond Eyles' and Louise Irvine's book, 'The Doulton Lambeth Wares'
The vase is in mint condition with no chips, cracks, crazing, restoration or scratches.
