This magnificent stoneware vase – tyg (a vessel with three handles) was modeled by Doulton’s most celebrated female artist, Hannah Barlow in the the late 1870’s. Barlow is known around the world for her studies of animals in their natural habitat and this love of nature provided enough inspiration for her 30 year career at Doulton. Each panel on this tyg has a different scene of a horse incised into the piece. The sterling silver rims around the top and bottom of the tyg are hallmarked. This one-of-a-kind stoneware tyg has a Doulton mark and carries Barlow’s distinctive signature impressed on the bottom.
Condition: Very good. Great characteristics typical of Doulton Lambeth stoneware from the 1870’s. Silver is in excellent condition. Piece shows beautifully and is a great example of Hannah Barlow’s earliest works.
