A lovely Charlotte Rhead tube-lined 'Byzantine' vase (shape 133) in the more unusual colourway known as 'Danube'. Stylised cerise and purple flowers with smaller blue flowers tube lined in blue on a mottled ground; the leaves washed in a lovely green lustre. A rich and vibrant design in excellent condition; no chips, cracks or restoration. Signed in blue enamel 'C Rhead' with tube liner's mark for Violet Barber and shape number 133 with printed Crown Ducal mark. Height 17.5cm (6.9in)
Although I have another vase in this shape and design, they were sourced separately and don't really work as a pair because of colour variations, etc.
