A Mintons Pate-Sur-Pate dark olive green colored urn form vase, slip-decorated by Albion Birks. The classical scene features a draped, seated woman, likely Aphrodite, attending to a smoking brazier on her lap, which is issuing smoke interspersed with pairs of wrestling putti. The reverse shows a slip-decorated burning torch, with more putti above the flames. Gold draped laurel handles flank the sides. Signed "ABirks" on lower right side of stepped base for Albion Birks. Base with gilt globe Mintons stamp along with incised marks "Mintons" and shape number 2449. 12" H. Circa 1900.


Cover is absent; slight wear to gilt decoration, minor scratch to surface to left of the female figure, not affecting color.
