A late 19th century Royal Doulton Faience vase, painted in subtle shades of green and beautifully decorated with butterflies, fruit and flora subjects, and intricately detailed along the neck and base. Faience is the English name for fine tin-glazed ceramic ware—in particular, decorated pottery on a delicate pale buff earthenware body. The invention of a white pottery glaze suitable for painted decoration, by the addition of an oxide of tin to the slip of a lead glaze, was a major advance in the history of pottery.
