A fine antique Langley Ware red stoneware jardiniere, planter or vase of large size, beautifully decorated in the round with impasto flowers (wild roses?) on a ground graduating from cream down to salmon. Stencilled stipple ground neck in Art Nouveau taste. The style and quality of the impasto decoration indicates that it might be the work of William Oram Trivett, although it is unsigned.

Impressed “Langley Ware”, “England” and “840”, c1896-1901.
It is in very good condition, with no damage or repairs. There is minimal internal wear from use, no body or base hairlines and no glaze crazing. There is the odd minor surface scratch.
