Perfect as signature vases for a mantelpiece or corner tables they are guaranteed to be noticed as soon as you enter the room! It's fantastic to have Hannah Barlow and Frank Butler, two of the greatest Doulton Lambeth artists, working on the same pieces and these vases were made as a pair and have remained as a pair for over 120 years. Both vases have a total of 26 exquisite sgraffito decorated cows grazing in fields (one vase with 14 cows and the other with 12 cows) stretching around the circumference of both vases which always show wonderful pastoral scenes whichever way the vases are positioned.The lovely carved floral detailed borders full of gorgeous cobalt blues, chocolate mochas and sea green colors to give the cows the perfect frame. The vases have lovely light turquoise beaded edges either side of the cow scenes and large flaring rims with electric cobalt blue interiors.
The vases are marked on their bases with the Royal Doulton Lambeth stamp','HB 78' for Hannah Barlow,'FAB' for Frank Butler and'ES' for Elizabeth Shelley as well as various other impressed letters and numbers. The vases measure approximately 16 1/4 inches high and are about 6 1/4 inches at their widest points. Together they weigh approximately 12 1/2 pounds.
One vase is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs and only extremely minimal wear, the other has had very fine professional restoration around +/- 1 1/2 inches of the rim, otherwise there are no other chips, cracks or repairs and only minimal wear.
