Twin-handled vase from the Linthorpe Pottery c1885. Indescribably gorgeous rich amber coloured glaze with deep crimson flashes. Linthorpe pottery designs were strongly influenced by Christopher Dresser who took inspiration from Oriental ceramics of the period - these influences very evident in this piece. The vase has the incised mark for the Linthorpe Pottery. 21.5cm height. Dresser was artistic director during Lintorpe's earlier years - the Pottery only being in existence between 1879 and 1889.
In 1879 John Harrison (a local businessman) established Linthorpe Pottery in conjunction with Christopher Dresser, one of the most influential designers of the late 19th century. Dresser acted as artistic director at the Pottery until 1882 and continued to submit designs whilst the Pottery remained in production.

Linthorpe Pottery Amber and Ruby Two-Handled Art Vase c1885
This vase is in very good original condition with no chips, cracks or losses. Because of the innovative glazing techniques used at Linthorpe, crazing is commonly seen in areas where pieces are deeply glazed such as in this piece (shown in last image) as well as occasional imperfections in the glaze. Please see images as these form an important part of the description.
