Vase

1886-1891

Doulton Lambeth (English)

Turned stoneware

6 in. H x approximately 3 in. at widest point (15.3 cm H x 7.6 cm W)

$900.00

The English pottery factory Doulton Lambeth invented its Agate wares around 1886, utilizing a technique developed by their 18th-century Staffordshire potter forefathers. The marbled effect visible on this Doulton Lambeth stoneware vase does not come from the glaze: different-colored clays were kneaded together and, after throwing and turning the unfired clay on a lathe, the vase’s marbling was revealed. Although Doulton Lambeth’s Agate wares rightly enjoyed public admiration, they were produced in limited quantities because of their complicated and expensive manufacturing process and were ultimately discontinued around 1906.
