This Doulton Lambeth vase, made by Mark V. Marshall, fuses and contrasts Medieval Gothic art with Belle Epoque Art Nouveau design. The 19th-century Gothic Revival movement sought to correct the decline of social standards and morals by introducing into design the characteristics found in Gothic Christian art, seen here in the coiling dragons around the neck. The body, taking after the Belle Epoque Art Nouveau movement, heralds “art for art’s sake,” valuing aesthetics over materials and creating a sumptuous and precious exterior more akin to a polished gemstone.
