Lot Details
A fine pair of Worcester hexagonal bottle vases
circa 1753-4
the slightly flattened, six-sided small bottles painted in Kakiemon style with flowering prunus and bamboo growing from banded hedges, a simple flowering plant and scattered florets on the reverse, simple red line borders hung with famille rose flower buds around the rims, 11.4cm and 11.7cm (one with a small rim chip entirely glazed over during manufacture) (2),

Footnotes

  • The colouring suggests that Worcester copied their 'Banded Hedge' pattern from a Meissen or Dutch-decorated version rather than earlier Japanese Kakiemon porcelain. A similar bottle was in the Cohen collection, exhibited by Albert Amor, 1992. For another without a border see John Sandon and Simon Spero, The Zorensky Collection, fig. 48.
