Countdown to Mother’s Day

Collection of English Arts & Crafts Vases by Royal Doulton (LEO Design)

With Mother’s Day a week away, we’d like to share an assortment of “Handsome Gifts” which would be perfect for Mom.  Over the next seven days, we’ll show you some ideas that might tickle your mother’s fancy.

Photographed above, a trio of Royal Doulton English Arts & Crafts vases made in the early Twentieth Century.  Each is marked with the “1902+” date stamp and they present some of the aesthetic elements that characterize English Arts & Crafts design:  botanical motifs, gothic forms, whiplash configurations, and sensuous, curvaceous shapes.  The pieces were cast with raised, decorative lines and glaze was hand-painted into the resultant “reservoir fields.”

Please come into the shop to see them for yourself—or call for further information.  By clicking on the photo above, you’ll be lead to the online shop entry for the tallest, cobalt blue vase.

More Mother’s Day ideas tomorrow.
