A small pair of Doulton Lambeth Siliconware 5" (13cm) vases with characteristic mosaic and 'cracked ice' decoration by the finest expert of these techniques.
The vases have the impressed Doulton Silicon Lambeth mark without the word 'England'. This dates them to pre-1891. Both have the incised monogram of Eliza Simmance and her design number 912. One also has the incised monogram of Nellie Garbett.
The vases each have a rim chip, that has been restored. Apart from that they are in excellent condition with the gold leaf work being particularly fresh. The vases weigh 560g.
