Description

From the Royal Doulton fish “J” series comes this relief moulded vase. The pattern depicts fish swimming through colourful strands of coral and marine plants. The design was inspired by Australia’s Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, the largest natural coral reef in the world.

The “Old Wife” refers to a species of fish found in the waters of tropical Australia, when the fish is caught on a hook and line the teeth are ground together supposedly producing the sound of an ‘Old Wife’

This series was introduced in 1938 and withdrawn by 1955 and depicts a special backstamp for the series.

The vase stands 175mm high and is 100mm diameter.
