A Grainger & Co Worcester porcelain blush ivory reticulated lidded vase dating 1897. This is an extremely decorative and attractive antique example of late 19th century Victorian porcelain
This Persian-style lidded vase has hand pierced reticulated decoration to the upper part of the body, the two ornate handles and the lid. It has the blush ivory palette with gilded highlights and bands adding to the opulent look. The vase has the printed mark of Grainger & Co on the base and on the neck of the cover. The date letter G under the mark dates it to the year 1897.
Reticulated pieces are highly collected and the most famous maker at Worcester was George Owen whose items command thousands of pounds. A rare item of his was recently shown on BBC's Antiques Roadshow.
The vase stands 9 1/4 inches high and is approximately 7 1/4 inches wide. It weighs 508 g and the main part of the vase is in excellent condition with no damage. The lid, however, has been broken into a number of pieces, re-glued and restored. Despite this damage, it displays well.
This is a stunning piece to add to any collection and a beautiful display item.
