Fine and Rare Pair of Early Dr Wall Worcester Cornucopia Of The Large Size

An extremely Fine and Rare Pair of Early Worcester Cornucopia of the large size, of spiralled horn shape, beautifully painted in a pale tone of blue with the ‘Cornucopia Prunus’ pattern showing sprays of flowering prunus issuing from a gnarled stump, the shoulder or rim moulded with a running design of flowerheads and leaves and blue scroll border decoration on either side.

See ‘Blue and White Worcester Porcelain’ Branyan, French and Sandon, I E 20. Worcester produced three versions of the Cornucopia vase, this being the earliest, the quality and form of the shape differs enormously. These examples are without doubt some of the finest with a careful asymmetrical elegance afforded to them and a delightful early pale blue tone. The vases, which have two pierced holes at the back for fixing to the walls, could be used all year round with seasonal flowers or twigs and grasses in the Winter.

Engravings for the use of these Cornucopia vases can be seen in the ‘Ladies Amusement’.
