This Minton jardiniere is a lovely example of their 'Secessionist' range, which was designed by Leon Solon and John Wadsworth. The pattern is number 71 and the raised borders were applied by a technique known as tube lining or slip trailing. When the the coloured glazes ran during the firing, it gave the effect of a piece of individual art pottery, which it is, in effect, as each piece will be slightly different.
It stands 260 mm (10.25 inches) high and has a diameter of 287 mm (11.25 inches) at the rim.
Overall, its condition is very good, but it does suffer from a bit of crazing and a firing crack to the base. Both these are shown in the photos.
