A Pair of Late C18th Creamware ‘Porphyry’ Urns

An extremely chic pair of large creamware ‘porphyry’ vases of campana shape, the cream scrolling handles with satyr masks at the base, the exteriors with a mottled blue and green glaze meant to mimic porphyry, the interiors in cream. English, possibly Wedgwood, circa 1780-1800.

This type of decoration intended to mimic porphyry, a precious hardstone found in the decorative arts of the wealthiest of households, was an invention of Josiah Wedgwood in the 1770s
