This pottery vase has a glossy finish with lots of gold and the most usual design I have ever seen. The bottom of the vase features scalloped items that are outlined in gold. Starting at the middle of the vase are three gold tipped horns held in place with ribbons with gold accents. The top half of the vase is covered in roses all the way around and the top rim has heavy gold. Did I mention that the piece has lots of gold? The hand painted roses are breathtaking. There are no chips, cracks, hairlines and only minor crazing which does not show except under close inspection. This is a huge piece that measures 11" high, about 9" across and almost 5" across the top. Texas residents to pay 8 1/4% sales tax or provide exemption information.
