The Masons decorators adapt their versatile "Fence" pattern to a surprisingly petite scale in this little vase. The splashy orange and cobalt flower, which is the focus of the pattern, stakes out a fair share of the available space on each side, while the accompanying fence and blue space create a pleasing vignette around the base. The Masons decorators continue the pattern with a ring of florals around the top of the collar.

As one compares this piece to other examples of the "Fence" pattern in Seekers stock, it is fascinating to see the manner in which the Masons decorators adapted such a loud, splashy, and usually large scale pattern to such a petite piece.
