MARTIN BROTHERS VICTORIAN POT DECORATED WITH GROTESQUE FISH.
A most unusual and attractive four sided pot / vase which sits on four feet which are part of the pot design.The pot is glazed in a pale green glaze with brown lip, each side of the pot features a large grotesque fish which are slightly raised out of the surface so they have a slightly 3D appearance, the glaze is formed to appear as the movement of water, a very clever technique which the Martin Brothers are known for. The base of the pot is fully signed Martin Bros London & Southall and dated 11.1900.The pot has four tiny glaze frits to the top lip of the pot, but these are very insignificant and hardly worth mensioning. Height approximately 12cm or 5 inches. A fine attractive and unique pot .
