Large Antique 19th Century Pair English Staffordshire Sheep Ram Spill Vases Figurines


Brand Unknown

Here is a beautiful pair of Staffordshire Flatback Ram & Sheep Spill Vases. These salt glazed stoneware vases come from England.  Most Staffordshire figures made from 1740 to 1900 were produced by small potteries and makers' marks are generally absent.  These date to the earlier 1900’s and one bears an English marking as shown.

Salt glaze pottery is usually stoneware with a glaze of glossy,  translucent and slightly orange-like texture which was formed by throwing common salt into the kiln during the higher temperature part of the firing process. Sodium from the salt reacts with silica in the clay body to form a glassy coating. The glaze may be colorless or may be colored various shades of brown blue, or purple depending on the oxide used.

Approximate dimensions: 7.5” high

Condition: These lovely vases are in very good condition
