Lot Details
The Albert Medal Vase An Important Lambeth Commission
by Mark Marshall magnificently embellished with the curving body of a snarling salt-glazed dragon, with bold curving stems and plant forms in heavy relief around a central slip-decorated plaque which reads `The Albert Medal of the Society of Arts was Presented in Person by HRH The Prince of Wales to Henry Doulton on December 21st 1885 at The Lambeth Art Pottery on Which Occassion this Vase was Designed' 55cm high

Footnotes

  • When Henry Doulton was awarded The Albert Medal `In recognition of the impulse given by him for the production of artistic pottery' he was handed perhaps the highest honour ever to befall an English Pottery manufacturer. The prowess that this medal lent to Doultons paved the way for the eventual granting of a Royal Warrant to the company, and also served to lend the company status and recognition worldwide which would aid it's artistic endevours for the next one hundred years.
    The Albert Medal Vase is a lasting tangible reminder of that momentous day in the Company's auspicious history.
