Product Description

The beauty and drama of a Kingfisher diving into water to catch a fish is a sight that, once seen, will never be forgotten. The vivid flash of blue and orange is over in a matter of moments, but the impression is seared into the memory for ever. It is just such a moment that is captured on Bronte’s Kingfisher Vase.


The elegant, curved shape of this medium-sized (195mm/7½ inches) vase is suited perfectly to the depiction of the plunging kingfisher, set above the lily pads floating on the surface of the water. The combination of the power and vigour of the bird with the gentle calmness of the water lilies, capturing such a fleeting moment in an image so permanent, in colours that will never fade, is something that only the finest ceramic artists can achieve.


Cast in fine bone china, the vase is glazed, fired and then decorated entirely by hand. On the front of the vase the diving kingfisher is beautifully realised in minute detail, the precise rendering of its wings and feathers matched by the deep and lustrous colouring of its plumage, all painted entirely by hand. On the rear a wonderfully subtle motif captures the shimmering movement of the water reeds. The rim and foot line of the vase are then finished with a band of 22 carat gold. This magnificent vase is available only from this website, and cannot be bought in any shop or online retailer, making it a truly exclusive gift.
