Vases with Large Red Flowers and Greek Key Decoration

$4,800.00

Description

A pair of neoclassical Greek revival vases with large red flowers and Greek key decoration. The large red flowers are set on a beautiful chalcedony background. These outstanding vases attributed to the Davenport factory in England were made in the early 19th century which was the pre “mark” period for the factory.

What is so wonderful about these vases is the vibrant red flowers on both the front and back of each vase. The flowers are complemented by the red enamel loop handles. The desirable Greek key design, painted in black, sits on the shoulder of each vase.

It is the simplicity of these vases, the red flowers set on the beautiful chalcedony ground and complemented with the black Greek key design that makes the vases so exciting.

Background

Davenport Pottery was a leading English earthenware and porcelain manufacturer based in Longport, Staffordshire, England. In 1785, John Davenport began as a potter working with Thomas Wolfe of Stoke. In 1794, he acquired his own pottery at Longport and began producing cream-colored blue-printed earthenware. By September 1806 the quality of his porcelain and pottery wares was such that the Prince of Wales, later to become King George IV, ordered services from Davenport.
