It dates from the Victorian period, 1890-1900.The hand-painted flowers which adorn each piece have been painstakingly executed. The colors are brilliant and depict pansies and forget-me-nots with clear detail. The flask (with porcelain stopper) is adorned the same on the front and back. Hand-painted gilt borders separate each part of the design. The top of the stopper is embellished with a single bouquet which seems to have been "picked" from the "garden" on the front of the flask. It measures 6 1/8" tall, 3 3/4" wide (at widest point) and the body 1" wide; the stopper 1 3/4" in diameter.

The covered creme pot is sumptuous, the lid has a central knob which is painted in the form of a rose. Bouquets surround the knob and fancy hand-painted gilt borders separate the design sections. It measures 2 1/2" tall and 2 1/4" in diameter.
