A stylish studio pottery lidded jar applied with decorative stylized panels by Stefanie Newton and believed to have been made in Cornwall between 1977 and 1983.

Our research suggests that she was born in Australia in 1944 and spent between 1975 and 1977 potting there before moving to Cornwall. In 1983 she moved to France returning to England in 1995. stunning Doulton Lambeth Aesthetic Movement decorated with stylised floral and leaf designs by renowned artists Edward Dunn and Rosina Brown and dated 1884.

This finely made rounded stoneware jar stands on a narrow flat round unglazed base and is decorated with four stylized floral decorated panels around the body and similarly decorated roundel to the domed cover. The jar is decorated in tones of blue on a light grey speckle glazed ground with brown and blue painted designs. The style of potting and decoration is very similar to the work of David Leach and suggests the jar may have been inspired by this. The jar has an impressed SN mark to the lower edge.
