Newton School copper twin handled vase


A stunning copper twin handled vase with a repeating pattern of geese amongst reeds in repousse. The vase was made by the Newton School of Metal Workers, almost certainly from a design by John Williams, circa 1900.

The design for this vase appears in the Newton School of Metal Work  archive (illustrated) and I have seen several examples over the years. This particular vase is in fantastic condition and has clearly been well looked after. Most of the twin handled vase designs were produced by either John or Mary Williams but my feeling is that this is an early design by John. There is an old paper label to the underside which I have left on as part of the history of the piece. 

Made in a good gauge of copper typical of the School’s early work this piece displays incredibly well.


Dimensions:    9 1/2″ tall by 4 1/2″ in diameter at widest point and just under 9″ at widest point across the handle

Condition:   Good.
