S Fielding & Co., Crown Devon vase in the "Ribbon" pattern
Tonight, Auld Curiosities brings you a small vase made at the Crown Devon Pottery by S Fielding and Co. This vase bears an imprinted shape number of what appears to be 46 and the version of the Ribbon pattern decoration number 017. The pattern appears to be transfer printed with hand decorating of colour applied. The back-stamp gives a fairly accurate range for the manufacture date, as being between 1913 and 1917. The rim of the vase has a metal collar – probably silver but not hallmarked so priced as if a base metal. The vase stands 4 ½” (114mm) tall on splayed foot and the body has fine crazing to the glaze. No chips, cracks or undue wear seen.
Postage will be determined at point of sale and is a cost to the buyer. We determine costs to each item as opposed to having regional postage charges to ensure that our charges are accurate and fair.

Covid 19 may continue to ravage world-wide but Dunedin City and indeed Otago, New Zealand remains free of both the Delta and Omicron variants. This is perhaps a reflection on the polarisation of where the majority of visitors fly into New Zealand, our border controls and the provision of managed isolation strategies – however it also has to be acknowledged that the relaxation of some controls may create a fluid situation for viral spread during the holiday period. As always, Auld Curiosities will endeavour to ensure that any of items being stored and/or dispatched will present minimal risk to others.
If for any reason you find an item does not match the description (written or photographic) please contact Auld Curiosities by email within 7 days of the item arriving, to arrange return and refund.
Packaging and Postage
With every item we sell, it is our intention to take every possible care to have it delivered to you in the same condition as when it left our premises. For this reason, packaging is tailored to each item and provides the maximum protection that we consider the item requires. Any item that arrives in a damaged condition should be referred to your postal service in the first instance for assessment of their handling of the package. If satisfaction is still lacking then we will look to see whether our efforts have been inadequate for fair handling of an item and if it is found to be so we will refund the cost of the item. Postage has now become a major cost in ecommerce so we try to strike a balance that will not unduly add excessive cost to your purchase.
