    A very large and attractive Burmantofts Faience Art Nouveau jardiniere or planter c1890. Footed inverted baluster form with collar neck and everted rim. Stylised tube-lined design with flowers in tonal colours around the body with matching band to neck. Thickly glazed vivid olive-green fluted lower body merging to form the foot, with matching band to rim. Impressed Burmantofts Faience mark and number to base. The jardiniere measures 37 cm in diameter and 27.5 cm in height. A substantial and highly decorative piece.
    This jardiniere is in overall very good condition commensurate with age and use. No cracks or restoration. Some glaze flaws to orange areas. Very minor nibbles to raised tubeline decoration. Crazing to green glazed area on lower body. Internally there are some abrasions to inside rim and bowl from use. Please see images as these form an important part of the description.

     
    The company (initially producing architectural ceramics) was started by William Wilcock and John Lassey in 1859 following the discovery of fire clay in a mine owned by Wilcock. In 1880, with an established market for middle-class home decorative objects, they ventured into the production of art pottery as an addition to industrial glazed ceramic products. The company was fortunate in having both coal and high-purity clay on the same site enabling good reproduction of shape and glazes of high clarity and brilliance. The most recognisable wares are their high-fired monochrome pieces as well as their Anglo-Persian vases - their range of decorative wares also including tube-lined and lustre pieces. By 1885 Burmantofts' products were on sale in London (at Harrods and Liberty's), Paris and Montreal. However, by 1904 their products were no longer profitable due to competing products from Britain and nearby Europe, and production of their Art Pottery ceased. The firm finally ceased production of architectural ceramics and closed in 1957.
