A rare and unusual Watcombe aesthetic movement terracotta sleeve or spill vase decorated with floral and linear patterning by renowned Scottish born designer Christopher Dresser (British, 1834 – 1904) and dating from around 1885. The red clay vase is lightly potted with low relief molded bands around the upper and lower rims decorated with starburst and linear patterned designs set between simple raised edging with three further panels similarly separated to the body of the vase. Two are painted in turquoise glazes and border a central band with slightly weaving vertical patterning and painted with two pink toned bands. The raised elements are gilded and the vase has a black printed Watcombe Torquay mark to the base.
