The Flow Blue technique was used to create the soft misty effect in the Blue Children ware. Romantic sylvan scenes depict angelic girls and boys, immaculately dressed in frilled bonnets and smocks or velvet knickerbockers.. The children enjoy picnics, gathering berries and flowers or searching for fairies. This tapering form vase has a small fluted rim opening with sponge gold trim - features the two gorgeous little girls under the tree with a tiny witch.

Back stamp in brown states Burslem - Doulton - England - was in use from 1891 until 1902, so this would be possibly be a first issue of this piece.. Light signs of previous use should be expected consistent with age, Overall condition is very nice - minimal micro scratches, rub with the exception of a possibility of firing defect to the glaze - some light glaze crazing is certainly present.. The gold trim on the porcelain looks nice with around 95% intact..
The last picture I show the oval plaque I also have listed in the "Blue Children" Seriesware. There are 24 different Blue Children scenes to collect and they were used on a huge variety of shapes from plates and chargers to ornate vases and ewers... The first Royal Doulton collectors were captivated by the beautiful flow blue designs which are now known as Blue Children or Babes in the Wood...
Burslem studio artists added hand-painted details to the central design, including trees, foliage, flowers and birds. Successive generations of collectors have been attracted to the striking combination of midnight blue on a white bone china ground making Blue Children one of the most successful collections from Doulton's Burslem studio.
