Portland Vase - Bert Bentley, Full Stand
In the early 1920s, Wedgwood decided to produce an exceptional edition of the Portland Vase, and Harry Barnard embarked on 3-4 years of experiments, which resulted in this superb and small edition.
The vases were available alone, on a simple stand, or on the elaborate stand seen here, which features panels taken from the sarcophagus of The Emperor Severus, in which the original vase was thought to have been found.
Decorated by Bert Bentley, generally considered to be the best of the 20th century decorators.
