This is a rare, very early ironstone vase, in a typical hand painted Japan pattern, made by the Mason's factory in the early 19th century, Circa 1815.

The vase has a baluster shape raised on a circular foot with two moulded, spurred side handles and a slightly everted rim.

It is decorated in a typical hand painted "Japan" pattern with an orange flower having green leaves, growing from a rocky base. This is a beautifully hand painted pattern with strong enamels of mazarine blue, burnt orange, pink and different shades of green highlighted with richly hand-painted gold gilded detail typical of the free flowing style of the earliest Mason's pieces. There is also an inner border pattern as this piece would not have had a lid.

The vase is marked with the impressed circular mark stating " Patent Ironstone China" which is probably Mason's earliest impressed mark.

We date this fine piece to circa 1813 to 1815, which is a very early piece as Mason's only started producing Ironstone in 1813.
