Small China Vase Series

Starting in the 1880s, Wileman and Co. produced a range of small china vases, jugs and pots, typically from 70 to 125 mm high (about 3 to 5 inches). They are usually called the “Small China Vase Series” because the factory pattern books only use “Vases”, with no mention of jug or pot shapes. Examples of the series are not rare but are uncommon and the china versions are sometimes confused with china crested miniatures, which have some overlapping shape numbers, or with their earthenware replacements, introduced in the 1910s. The following pictures illustrate all known shapes with their shape numbers and heights (where known).
