This impressive stoneware vase – tyg (a vessel with three handles) was modeled in 1873 by Doulton’s most famous female artist, Hannah Barlow. Hannah Barlow was the first female hired at the Doulton Lambeth studio and today her work is collected around the world. Each panel on this tyg has been incised with delightful dogs at the base of a mountain range. The three handles are decorated with a chocolate brown lattice pattern and the sterling silver rim around the top of the tyg is hallmarked. The bottom of this one-of-a-kind piece has an impressed Doulton Lambeth mark with the incised date 1873. Other marks include the distinctive Hannah Barlow initials, assistant marks and the number 314.
Condition: Very good, with great characteristics typical of Lambeth stoneware pieces made during this time. Hannah Barlow’s work is instantly recognized and this large tyg is pure Hannah! At home, Hannah created her own menagerie of pets and among her favorites were her beloved dogs. This tyg makes a bold statement because of its size and would be coveted in any Doulton collection.
