Doulton Burslem Nankin Centrepiece
This is a stunning centrepiece by Doulton, marked Doulton Burslem, earlier than Royal Doulton. This is a huge piece, measuring 12" across when the handles are included, or 10" across the rim, and 5" high. The pattern is Nankin, and the nice thing about this piece is that it looks fantastic from every angle because it is completely covered with pattern. The inside is blue and white with gold embellishment, and the border is in imari colours of cobalt blue and a rusty red. There is some green there as well, and under the border on the outside there is a green trim.
