On offer here is a striking Minton's secessionist art nouveau style No. 1 vase, designed by Leon Solon and John Wadsworth, green tube lined decoration on a red ground. This vase, which measures 18.5 cms (7 inches) in height x 13 cms (5 inches) across the base, comes in very good, overall condition, commensurate with age; one small area of glaze loss to the base measuring 0.5 cms (see photos); possibly an original firing fault. The date code is difficult to decipher, but the Minton Ltd mark, plus the design itself, places this vase to between 1900 and 1908 (see Godden's British Pottery and Porcelain Marks on Minton). Inspection is available for UK residents on appointment in Surrey, U.K.
