A pair of Wedgwood black basalt vases
A pair of Wedgwood black basalt twin handled vases
mid 20th century
typically decorated in relief with Classical style figures and on square pedestal bases,
impressed factory marks,
28cm high (2)
Sold for £180
One vase is slightly loose from its bolt to the pedestal base and can rotate freely. No signs of any cracks, chips, damages or repairs. Needs cleaning - some tightly packed dust has collected around the relief frieze.
One base simply impressed 'Wedgwood', the other 'WEDGWOOD MADE IN ENGLAND'. Please see images.
These were previously owned by a lady who was a thrower for Wedgwood in the 1950s/60s.
