From the late 19th century, a pair of baluster shaped vases with a fluted lip. The Imari colour scheme with it’s mix of reds, blues and whites, looks just as elegant today as it did 100 years ago. In that former world without planes or even cars.

An impressive and beautiful pair of Delftware lidded vessels. Stylistically dating from the 16th century, these reproduction items have been made by Boch for Royal Spinx. Both these Flemish companies commenced trading in the early 1800 ‘s and these examples are from the mid 1900’s. For us these classic items would look great in the window or on the mantlepiece or dining table.
Though, in our experience it is our purchasing clients that deliver the most imaginative and elegant settings for the pieces you see at Grays. I sometimes wish I could share the photos I receive of Grays stock in their eventual new homes.
25 cms wide and 48 cms high (2).
