Staffordshire Spill Vase

Just a casual couple taking a walk, stopping by a tree trunk that is cut off just above their heads. She looks bemused he looks vacant!

This flatback was made in the late 19th Century in Staffordshire by one of the innumerable companies that made such pieces. The hand painted elements of these pieces is always the finishing element that gives the people character and expression. In addition to the people on this spill vase the decoration also extends to the trum of the gentleman’s waistcoat and the tiers of the female character’s skirt. It may be unseasonably cool but she is also carrying a muff.

This piece would have been made to sit on a mantelpiece and would have held the spills necessary to light the fire or candles.

There are a couple of firing faults to the flatback and a couple of losses to the glaze but it is generally in good condition.

For some curious reason these spill vases seem to always have very roughly applied orange glaze to the opening of the vase.

Height: 29.2cm
