Rare MELBA Ware Fine Arts Vase 1960s retro
The vase is in pristine vintage condition with no chips, only two glazing flaws ( please look carefully at the photos as they are highlighted). Even when photographed in the rain, it still shines!
The bottom half of the vase is in a beautiful warm rich red/brown colour like treacle (the photo doesn’t do the colour justice!); the top half in a brown and cream speckled pattern, described as a honeycomb dripglaze down the long trumpet shaped neck, typical of Melba Ware.
Date unknown although I would say from the very retro design it was probably 1960/70s.– stamped on bottom : “Melba Ware (Fine Arts Division) Ltd. MFA II”. Melba Ware was the product of HA Wain & Sons.
A perfect mid century vintage piece of Melba Ware to add to your collection in your mid century modern home.
