The vase with richly gilded ground, decorated in coloured enamels with pink and green dragons, flowers and stylised foliage and with elephant styled handles with rings. The base with mock Chinese marks in iron red. There are three cracks, professionally restored, they are visible on the green background of the neck of the vase; please see photos. From the outside they are almost invisible. Both rings in handles are intact which is very rare for a vase this age. Some light wear to gilt and paint, commensurate with this vase being older than 200 years. Please review all photos carefully. Fine example of Miles Mason’s early production dating circa 1800 to 1816 – the period when mock Chinese marks were used on rare vases. A similarly shaped vase with a different pattern is depicted on plate 288, page 212 of Geoffrey A. Godden “Mason’s china and the Ironstone Wares”. Golden, a specialist on British porcelain describes it as: “A rare Mason’s Ironstone vase after an Oriental original”. This vase can be seen on display at Victoria and Albert Museum. 17 cm in height 3,8 cm in diameter across the opening 5.5 cm in diameter at the base 6.5 cm in diameter at the widest section.
