Production

Edward Raby was an artist who painted on delicate porcelain such as Royal Doulton vases during the early 1900's. Edward Raby was one of Doulton's most talented painters. Roses were his forte. 'To posses a Doulton vase adorned by one of these gems of colour by Raby is to hold a treasure of ceramic art' noted a contemporary observer. Part of a fabulous Doulton Collection gifted by John and Arthur Shorter in 1932, this unique vase was once displayed, lit with an internal light source - in Doulton's shop window in Melbourne.
Raby, Edward c. 1900
