Small Drabware Vase Neoclassical Design Made England, Circa 1830
Ridgway made this drabware vase in England circa 1830. Pressed out in a mold, this eye-catching vase has high-relief neoclassical decoration consisting of Roman-style portraits under a band of grape leaves on the vine. The handles are in the form of intertwined branches. This elegant design is finished with an egg and dart decoration around the top edge. Drabware is unlike other pottery. The rich color of all drabware stems from the fact that each piece is created using dark clay rather than white clay. Transparent glaze over the clay produces drabware’s naturally rich, saturated color.
Dimensions: 7″ across the handles x 4.75″ diameter x 5.25″ tall
