A Spode Porcelain Vase of 'New French Jar' Shape c.1825. Of ovoid form with elaborate handles either side. The front of the vase very finely decorated with a classical vase on top of a table full of exuberant and vibrant summer flowers. The artist has even taken the care to paint a small butterfly in the top right hand corner of panel. The reverse of the vase is very finely decorated with chased gilding with two Doves, each holding a garland of flowers from which is suspended a basket of flowers, either side are two cornucopias containing flowers. The pierced lid decorated with a 'cafe au lait' ground, surmounted by and unusual walnut-like finial with acanthus tendrils at it's base. Marked SPODE in red to the base.
Condition: The rim of the vase appears to have been ground down slightly as it is fairly sharp. A believe that the original rim would have been slightly flared.
