Product Description

An experimental red ‘oxblood’ monochrome vase, by George Howson & Sons, dated 1911.

Of garlic neck form, the vase has been finished with a red flambé or oxblood glaze. In both form and decoration, the vase is heavily inspired by Chinese ceramics from the Jingdezhen kilns.

The George Howson company was founded in Staffordshire in 1865. It would operate as a family-business for the next 100 years, before being taken over by Armitage Shanks in 1966.

Though predominantly a producer of practical wares, the factory experimented with monochrome glazes around the period of 1910. It was during this time that William Howson Taylor gained some of his early experiences, under his cousin Richard Howson and Edward Wilkes, a former employee of Bernard Moore. The experiment was short-lived and the company would lose William Howson Taylor to the Ruskin Factory a few years later.

The condition of the vase is very good with only a few minor white scratches to the glaze. The base is marked in the glaze with “Howson | 1911” with the factory monogram.
