A pair of Royal Worcester pot pourri vases by John Stinton, 1919, 1924, 1937/8

ovoid vases with reticulated rims, husk swags and moulded handles in gilt and shot colours, decorated with highland cattle in misty Scottish moorland settings, both signed J Stinton, puce backstamps underside and later 1937/8 stamp to one lid, shape 1428
29cm each

  • Condition: This pair is in very good condition throughout with one very small scratch to the body of one of the cattle, minor hints of gilding wear and rubbing commensurate with age. Please note that one item has a matching lid but of later manufacture. These vases do not have internal lids because the lids fit into the neck of the vases in contrast to pot pourri jars with inner flat lids which have covers that fit over the necks. Sandon's book on Royal Worcester describes pattern 1428 as comprising vase and cover only. This pair is typically decorated with the main cattle scene to the face, and a small landscape scene to the reverse.
