redware Shakespeare vase/ bottle

Post by 2canton4 on October 1st 2015, 7:41 am

Hello, I have this interesting small 4" high Shakespeare's "ALL THE WORLD'S A STAGE" (from the play "As you like it") redware vase/ bottle? with wonderful green and black hand painted? illustrations throughout. It is UNMARKED but appears to be quite old and has a good weight to it for it's small size, weighing in excess of 400g. Could this be an early Wedgwood piece? Any information or assistance with this query would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! David.

It could be Watcombe terracotta, but a base picture would help,
sometimes there is a small impressed symbol like a crow's foot.

It looks like there is the remains of a black stamp on the base. I've seen ones with other transfer prints on the front; I think they were mustard pots or similar. Watcombe or other Torquay ware would be my guess too.
