A Wedgwood, dark blue jasper dip jardiniere. This is marked “WEDGWOOD” and it dates from c.1890. It is also impressed with a number ‘6’, which relates to the size in inches, and a letter ‘B’. It is decorated with Apollo and four of the Muses, standing beneath garlands of grapes and vines which hang from lion’s head masks. To the rim is a narrow border of flowers. All of the reliefs are good quality and the jasper dip glaze is a good, rich shade of blue. There is a small, rusty stain to the interior, from use, and there is a firing crack to one of the reliefs. Also, in the manufacture, some of the dip colour has bled into the white relief. There is no damage or restoration to the piece.
Dimensions: Diameter 13.4cm Height 15.4cm.
