A vintage collection of four veined flambé cabinet vases by Royal Doulton of England, dating circa 1930s. The small art pottery vessels are perfectly sized to accompany an individual place setting or a breakfast tray. The vases are decorated in a glossy dark red Art Deco glaze with black, dark blue, and golden yellow accents. Doulton's chief designer, Charles Noke (1858-1941) used metallic oxides to create these high-fired, ornamental glazes in sophisticated patterns and color combinations unique to every piece.
Each vase bears a printed Royal Doulton factory crown and lion mark over FLAMBE / VEINED / 1606 underfoot, two of the vases are also impressed 1606. The collection is in very good condition overall, once vase has a tiny glaze nick or scratch on the neck. The vases are all the same height but appear to be two pairs; two measure 4.25 in. H x 2.75 in. (at widest) and two measure 4.25 in. H x 2.63 in. (at widest).
