Queen Victoria Diamond Jubilee Vase

In stock

Details:

In 1903, The Windsor Magazine recorded that Queen Victoria was “pleased to inspect a beautiful vase, which had been modelled and decorated in honour of the Record Reign.” There are many examples of Coalport’s connections with Queen Victoria but this is undoubtedly one of the most magnificent. The firm of F. and C. Osler, with a retail house in Oxford Street, London in 1895 or 1896 commissioned Coalport to produce a limited edition of 50 vases for Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee. This was a highly prestigious order for a very important occasion, and gave Coalport the opportunity to showcase the quality of their products. One side shows a profile of the mature Queen, surrounded by cameos representing achievements of her reign such as the Forth Bridge and a motor car contrasting with aspects of national life in 1837 on the reverse such as a stage coach and old London Bridge. All the many details have Royal connotations from the lion’s paw feet to the finely moulded crown finial, and display the immense skill and expertise available at the factory. The main artist was J.H.Plant.
