Pair of large Royal Doulton Chine Gilt vases. Item 1119.This imposing pair of Royal Doulton Chine Gilt vases stand 415 mm or 16.5 inches in height. Chine Gilt Ware was decorated by pressing pieces of lace work onto the soft surface of the piece as it came off the potters wheel, leaving an intricate pattern. In this case the pieces were then hand painted with white flowers on a blue ground and then gilded. Chine Ware and other wares were made at the Lambeth factory in London, where they were designed by the leading Doulton artists, but executed by the artists assistants. The production of this type of ware was never mass produced, and runs might only approach 1000 pieces. Their marks on the base show that these vases were decorated by A Tranter, Ellen Palmer, L Marriott and an unidentified assistant, with the design number being X6011. There is a repair to one of the flanges at the top, and some slight loss of gilding. The pair weigh 5.1 kg unpacked. They would date from around 1903-5.
