This one-of-a-kind stoneware vase – tyg (a vessel with three handles) was modeled in 1881 by Hannah Barlow, Doulton’s most collected female artist. Hannah Barlow will forever be remembered for her animals studies in their natural habitat. Each panel on this tyg is incised with a cow in a field and the three handles are decorated with a dark blue floral and ribbon motif. The sterling silver rim around the top of the piece is hallmarked. The bottom of the piece carries the Doulton Lambeth mark, the incised date of 1881, the initials of Hannah Barlow, an unidentified assistant and the number 297.
Condition: Very good. Great characteristics typical of Doulton Lambeth stoneware made during the late 1800’s. The sterling silver rim is in excellent condition. This tyg is an excellent example of Hannah Barlow’s early work and would make a striking addition to any collection.
