'Moroccan' ('alabaster-cored') (c. 1870-1890)
Notes: Bottle form vase decorated in ‘Moroccan’ polychrome enamel by Thomas Webb & Sons, circa 1870-1890. Described in Thomas Webb’s 1879 sketch-book as “alabaster-cored,” this Aesthetic period vase draws heavily on the influences of the Islamic and Orientalist decorative traditions.
Reference: Manley, ‘Decorative Victorian Glass’ no. 185, “A vase for identification, most deceptive. The first impression is obviously French, but Thomas Webb’s records (sketch-book of 1879) describe them as alabaster-cored, with square top and enameled, and it is when a number are placed alongside each other that this is realized, all differ in some way.
