A  most unusual, Wedgwood basalt vase with engine turned decoration. This piece has an impressed mark 'WEDGWOOD' with a separate 'ETRURIA ENGLAND' and this dates the vase to c.1895. There is also a letter 'A' which would be the workman's mark. The body of the vase has a central band which is plain and on this are two ram's heads. Above and below this band the vase has a fine, engine turned design. This is done with the use of a potters tool and is done when the vase is on the potters wheel and the pot is in a soft state. There is a further, but different, design of this type to the foot. The piece is in excellent condition and it is very good quality.
