These fine porcelain ewers are made in a neoclassical style with a slightly flaring base supporting a bulbous body whose neck narrows before ending in an elongated spout. Tall dramatic handles are attached to the vase. Rich cobalt blue panels alternate with white ground spaces each having simple floral embellishments surrounded by gilded swirls and scrolls. Heavy gilding is used throughout on these elegant ewers made c. 1895. The condition is very good except for a possible but well done repair on one of the ewer's handles which can be examined in the photo. We also note that there is some gilding loss typical of pieces of this age. The underside is marked with the KFA backstamp which we believe belonged to the Kennsington Fine Art Potter Company which operated in Hanley England c. 1892-99. Each ewer is also marked with 16/262 attesting to the compatibility of the pair. Dimension: 8 1/2" h
