Chinese style vase - unmarked but in a Dresser style

Post by Johners2000 on February 6th 2017, 3:57 pm

Hi, this vase has no marks but the handle do look a little like Dresser in style.

I don't think it's oriental in origin but it could be.

Anyone seen anything like this before?

Many thanks

I think it's Ault pottery by Dresser, but I'll have to go through the books.

Thank you. I don't understand why it isn't marked.

Can't see anything like it in all the books. The "tounges" designs tend to be more human heads than dragons.
I wonder now looking at that foot-rim, if its not Japanese art pottery c1900,
which of course is from where Dresser was heavily influenced.

I have seen a few Chinese bronze vases with the dragon tongue style handles - so that would make sense.

Not sure it is anything to do with Dresser. He combined South American with Asian styles to make things unlike both of them. This is very Asian. Its a peanut shaped body, with a classic Asian colour and animal form handles. You add the deep Japanese ceramics style base, the lack of any markings and its almost certainly oriental.  

Dresser and Ault get a lot of attributes these days. But very little they produced does not have a clear mark, at worst they have an obscured mark. What unmarked dresser there is out for sale comes from later use of the moulds after Linthorpe and others sold them off. I even came across a Lemon & Cruet vase from Torguay using a south American dresser for Linthorpe design with some lovely 1920's fruit painted on it last year. Ugly as sin but interesting to see the moulds getting used 30+ years after being first designed.

This is a ceramic Copy of a Bronze vase the Decoration is Taotie Masks, There is a very good chance this is English however some late Meiji Japanese kilns created pottery like this, Such as Awaji kilns. But these were copied as you said rightly By Dresser or Burmantofts Etc etc

Thank you all for the information - I am continuing to try and find out as much as I can. Kyoto or Awaji Pottery Dragon Vase of about 1920 is my current thought - although the lack of any mark doesn't help.
