Unique Art Deco fan vase by Maling of Newcastle, England. See NOTE below about this company.
Based on the hallmark on the bottom, this piece was produced somewhere between the 1920s to 1963 when the factory eventually closed.
The vase a a typical Art Deco style fan base, a shape that was popular in that time frame and features a thin bottom section that gradually fans out with the wide top fanning out with some small decorative handle-like pieces on the sides. The vase is hallmarked in the bottom.
The pattern features a top edge (on the wide fanned area) of pink colored flowers and dark green leaves on a mint green background. The cascade of flowers and blooms lay down into the center of the dark maroon color. The two sides have slightly different floral designs. Below the light mint green top floral section, on the body of the vase, is a maroon color with a textured background that looks like circular scales under the maroon paint. There are small knobs or flat handles on either side that are a gold color. The gold trim on them has quite a bit of wear. There is also a worn layer of gold trim that used to be all around the top edge or rim.
Hallmarked on the bottom MALING ENGLAND and a castle all in black with the hand painted pattern number 6576 N. There is also a number 22 impression on the one side of the bottom.
Measures 7" high. Top is about 5 1/2" wide at widest point. The vase is 2 1/2" deep.
In fair to nice antique condition with wear commensurate with vintage age - circa 1920s. There is significant wear to the gold trim on the edges and also the little handles. Some crazing all over.
