Osborne pattern baluster vase by Lovatt of Langley Mill 1909
Osborne ware pattern vase by Lovatt of Langley Mill. This impressive vase dates to 1909, falling into that period after William Calvert dissolved his partnership with the Lovatt brothers and departed Langley Mill. At that time a number of talented potters and decorators were producing very attractive and sought after wares. The Osborne pattern has a number of variations, but it never strays far from the main principles and is easily recognised. This offering is in the style of a baluster vase with dark navy glaze on top and bottom, trimmed with gold highlights. The pattern on the body of the vase is made up of white, caramel and dark green design elements on a finely textured, light green ground, again with gold toned highlights. The vase stands 12” (306mm) tall on a base with a diameter of 4 1/8” (105mm) and a maximum body diameter of approximately 5 ½” (140mm). Condition is pre-owned but excellent and the base marks are clearly seen in the photographs on the website www.auldcuriosities.com
