19C Aesthetic Mvmt Blue Transferware Lily Lillies English Moon Flask Pillow Vase


Brand Adderley

Here is a beautifully unusual, rare and hard to find dual handled gilded Flow blue vase.  This style / shape is referred to as either a Moon Flask or Pillow Vase.   It was made by the English firm Adderley (Willian Alsager Adderley) of Longton, Stoke - On - Trent and dates to the Aesthetic Movement of the late 19th century.   The vase features a cobalt flow blue transfer depicting Lillies (a slightly different depiction on either side) with lightly gilded sponge accents over them.  The handles, upper rim and around the base are gilded as well.  It is in wonderful condition having only  crazing and light wear to some of the gilding around the handles.  

Measures: 10 1/2” high
