MARBLEHEAD Rare vase carved and painted with panthers and stylized trees in browns on a pale green ground unusually sharp.

David Rago catalogue says “..excellent example of decorated Marblehead.  We've sold more than a couple of these in the past decade but I think this is the best of the lot.  good modeling, tight color, and, for what it's worth, this is the one I appraised on Antiques Roadshow, that aired a few years ago”
