Staffordshire Spill Vase – Fox
A spill vase was made to house spills which could be used in lighting a fire . . . . and therefore were good flatback pieces as they could sit on a mantelpiece. This one features a fox that has a helpless game bird of some sort in its front paws. The vase element is made from the hollow tree trunk behind the fox.
The piece is in good condition with no chips or cracks but does have some age related crazing to the glaze.
