Vase attr. to John Williams
Two handled copper vase with a design of fish that is unsigned but attributed to the influential craftsman John Williams.
There are a pair of fish on each side of the vase, depicted swimmimg among large leaved water vegetation.
The good sized handles are riveted to the body of the vase, one across the seam, and the whole thing is faily weighty for its size which is approximately 21 cm at the highest point.
Possibly made at the Fivemiletown class in Co. Tyrone, Ireland or at the Guild of Handicraft in London’s East End, where John Williams was one of the leading metalworkers.
