Antique c1870 English Staffordshire Spill Vase With Swans

1870

Displaying formidable craftsmanship in ceramics from the 1870s, this English Staffordshire Spill Vase boasts a delicate depiction of swans. Used in Victorian homes, this piece was once meant to contain "spills" for transferring fire. Spills were thin wooden sticks or tightly curled strands of paper used to transfer flame from an existing fire to another combustible material such as a candle, or tobacco in a smoking pipe. The design and attention to detail show the profound knowledge and skills that were demanded of ceramic artisans during that era, making this piece a historical addition to anyone's collection.
