RARE OPPORTUNITY! FROM THE DESIGNER'S FAMILY
Elegant Pomegranate Rubensware Vase F X Abraham S Hancock
In the ‘Pomegranate’ design: ‘Rubens Ware’ standing approx 10" high and 6” across the base. Weight: 858g without packaging. The inside of the piece is finished with the usual blue/green mottling, the neck and shoulders are decorated with the typical rubens ware border patterns typical of the best and earlier pieces.
Designed by my late grandfather, Frank Xavier Abraham, during his time with Sampson and Molly Hancock c.1920 -30.
This elegant glossy pomegranate vase is an example of one of their very successful and collectable range of hand painted and finished pieces. It was developed by Hancocks to challenge the pomegranate design of William Moorcroft.
It has been in our family collection but I am selling it now that we have moved into our retirement home and have less display space than we need
Collectors please note
*****************This piece is sold with a certificate of provenance and short history of the designer and his family.****************
This beautiful piece is in excellent condition. Free from restoration, cracks, chips or damage. Being scrupulous I will point out that there is an area on the rim where the black line is thicker. Please refer to photographs...it is a very minor observation which does not, for me, detract in any way but it is for you to consider. You may bid with confidence. The base is back stamped: 'Rubens Ware' 'Pomegranate' 'Hand painted' and signed ‘F X Abraham.
Please note: I am not an expert on condition but I am sure you will be delighted with this vase. Please ignore camera flash in images.
