Doulton Luscian ware vase painted by Charles Hart senior. Item 4453.This lovely Doulton Burslem Luscian ware vase was painted by Charles Hart senior who worked at Doulton for about 47 years, from 1880 – 1927. Charles Hart senior was a noted painter of flowers, fish and game birds, and his son, Charles Hart junior also joined Doulton’s as a painter. Luscian Ware was a Doulton product where the decoration was painted on glaze, but with skilfull glazing and firing techniques, the colours sank into the glaze, giving a delicate, soft effect. Standing 240 mm, or 9.5 inches high, this vase shape also appears in a larger version. It is in very good condition, other than a couple of minor scuffs to the glaze, which are mainly to the rear. The faint remains of the number C 9610 appear on the base and this dates the vase to the period 1899 – 1901.
