Incised Royal Doulton mark (use 1902-1922) and Doulton Slaters Patent mark. Signed with the artist's monogram HW - unfortunately unknown given such a well crafted and beautiful design.
The description Slaters was given to an unusual type of decoration which evolved in the 1880's. This was created by John Slater (manager of Doulton's Burslem Pottery) and was used predominantly between 1885 and 1915. The distinctive feature of these wares is a textured background achieved by pressing moistened pieces of textured fabric into the soft clay. A design was then applied over the textured body. The process was patented jointly by Doulton and Slater. For more information on Doulton visit our Maker's History pages.
