Doulton Lambeth’s pâte-sur-pâte technique.

A chance finding of the vase below inspired me to do a quick résumé of this once popular technique. Literally translated it means paste on paste, this type of ware was produced between 1878 and ca. 1906.

This type of ware was favoured by Florence Barlow who painted her birds and also Eliza Simmance who used it to highlight her flower designs.

An unusual technique and pieces of this ware are relatively scarce. Here is the base I the vase above with Edith Lupton’s initials and a series of clear markings including a date.
