Grainger’s Worcester Porcelain spill vase, ruined abbey landscape, bronzed griffin tripod legs, c.1815
Remarkable English Porcelain spill vase, the concave body painted with a continuous scene of an abbey by a river, the globular base with central knop, supported on three ‘Griffin’ feet mounted on rectangular clay pads, the feet in a bronzed finish, the rim and base with fine gilt neoclassical designs.
Attributed to Grainger’s Worcester,
Cunning rivet repair to one leg, otherwise great condition
The Grainger’s Worcester factory lists include ‘bronzed’ in the descriptions of items, and this is probably an example of what they meant. The porcelain and quality of both gilding and landscape painting both back up this attribution.
