Christopher Dresser, crown prince of Britain’s Aesthetic ceramic movement, is known for his wild, futuristic designs. His vase for Ault Pottery is presented in a shouldered form with cylindrical neck and everted rim, the shoulder modelled in relief with four masks, each with protruding elongated tongues, in glazes running in blue and aubergine.
