These lovely (nearly antique) vases come from the higher end of production by Royal Doulton. Made in bone china they are finer than the general stoneware produced by the company. They have a bulbous shape with narrow aperture so one supposes they are more suitable as bud vases than for arrangements.
The base is bone china in white, and they are decorated with what was known as the Iris pattern – fairly obvious as the flower featured is an Iris, done in royal blue. Each vase shows a slightly different flower front and back so you get four Irises for your money. Over the top is a gilt splatter which picks out the blue beautifully. Around the tapered base is a dark blue band with gilt banding and an ivy or vine frieze in gilt.
The mark on the base dates them to C1925, though we haven’t been able to identify the decorator.
These stunning vase come in excellent condition. As expected there is very slight “rubbing” to some of the gilding around the aperture but this comes with use and should not be considered to be damage. No chips or nibbles or other signs of damage.
