This dramatic stoneware tyg (a vessel with three handles) was created in 1877 by Hannah Barlow, the first female artist at the Doulton Lambeth studios. For more than 30 years, this talented artist will forever be remembered for her animal scenes incised and painted on vases, plaques and tygs. Each panel on this tyg has a different scene of a wolf in its natural habitat. This tyg is of great importance because wolves are among the most difficult animals to find on her work. The three handles are decorated with a ribbon and bead motif and an incised ribbon around the top of the tyg adds character and dimension.
This one-of-a-kind stoneware piece is marked on the bottom with the Doulton Lambeth mark and the incised date of 1877. Other marks include Hannah Barlow’s famous initials and two different assistant marks.
Condition: Very good, with great characteristics typical of Doulton Lambeth pieces created in the late 1800’s. Because of its rarity and condition, this Hannah Barlow tyg would be a great addition to any collection.
