Small Spode Porcelain Covered Flower Vase


From the Collection of Mario Buatta
Mario loved the rich floral painting of the Regency period.
In his collection we found this lovely gem-like covered vase. It was probably first used a pot-pourri.
It has a gold ground with a profusion of exquisite hand-painted flowers.
Creating the gilded ground involved using gold as pigment in paint: the artist ground the gold into a fine powder and mixed it with a binding agent. Then the gold was applied in the same way as paint. After gold-painting, the artist would heat the piece enough to melt the gold slightly, ensuring an even coat.
Made by and with the mark of Spode circa 1820.

Dimensions: diameter 1.75″ x height 2.5″
