Vintage Set of Four Royal Doulton Veined Flambe Cabinet Vases

US$350

About

A vintage collection of four veined flambé cabinet vases by Royal Doulton of England, dating circa 1930s. The small art pottery vessels are perfectly sized to accompany an individual place setting or a breakfast tray. The vases are decorated in a glossy dark red Art Deco glaze with black, dark blue, and golden yellow accents. Doulton's chief designer, Charles Noke (1858-1941) used metallic oxides to create these high-fired, ornamental glazes in sophisticated patterns and color combinations unique to every piece. Each vase bears a printed Royal Doulton factory crown and lion mark over FLAMBE / VEINED / 1606 underfoot, two of the vases are also impressed 1606. The collection is in very good condition overall, once vase has a tiny glaze nick or scratch on the neck. The vases are all the same height but appear to be two pairs; two measure 4.25 in. H x 2.75 in. (at widest) and two measure 4.25 in. H x 2.63 in. (at widest).

About the Manufacturer

Royal Doulton

The redoubtable British ceramics maker Royal Doulton has long embraced popular tastes and enjoys a devoted following among aficionados of English pottery. Some are drawn to the company’s intricately decorated bone china dinner services; others are passionate collectors of Royal Doulton’s artfully hand-painted vases, bowls and figurines. When founded in 1815 in the Lambeth section of suburban London, Doulton & Co. produced bottles and other storage containers and even sewer pipes in stoneware, a cheap but durable cousin of porcelain. Amid the Victorian era’s rising concern for hygiene, food safety and sanitation, the company flourished. And in the late 1870s Doulton expanded its business into the applied arts. The firm took over a factory in Staffordshire, in northern England — the traditional home of British ceramics manufacturing — to produce tableware. Around the same time, Doulton opened an art-pottery studio in Lambeth, where vases, urns and other forms were decorated with painted scenic images, flowers or historical motifs. Taking a cue from the venerable Meissen porcelain workshops in Germany, Doulton artisans began crafting figurines modeled on characters from literature and theater. The firm also helped popularize Toby Jugs and other “character mugs” — handled cups shaped as the heads of figures from folklore and popular culture. King Edward VII granted the company the Royal Warrant in 1901. Royal Doulton china will always make an elegant yet not-too-formal appearance in a traditional table setting. Prices for dinner services vary according to size, age and condition, but generally range from $2,000 to $15,000. Royal Doulton art pottery might be used by some as a bright decorative note; others collect the company’s figurines with the same interest and dedication as stamp and coin enthusiasts. A typical Toby Jug might fetch $50, while very rare figurines can sell for $7,000. Most of the finest Royal Doulton art pottery pieces sell for around $500. As you will see on these pages, few decorative-arts companies are as aesthetically and stylistically diverse as Royal Doulton. The firm truly offers something for everyone.
