Purchased from Waring and Gillow in 1918 by Thomas Walter Fletcher, the grandfather of the present owner. Tom Fletcher was a successful Nottingham lace and textile manufacturer. Because of his interest in lace, Fletcher was attracted by a selection of Worcester reticulated vases on display in the London department store. Over a period of a few years, he purchased seven pieces of George Owen's work. Two further George Owen vases from his collection were sold in these rooms 8 April 2009, lots 200 and 201.
