Like all of Royal Worcester’s blush ivory pieces, this delicate little pipe stem vase is trimmed with 22k gold. On this vase, however, the little gilded handles have been rubbed and re-fired to make them appear almost wooden. The rim, neck band and base are shinier gold as is the highlighting on all the lovely flowers and leaves covering the surface. The influence of the Aesthetic Movement is evident in this piece as it is in most of Worcester’s blush ivory creations. Also typical of Worcester’s blush ivory, the interior of the vase is pure white porcelain. Measures 6 ¾” tall x 2 ¾” wide at belly x 1 5/8” across the foot. The neck measures ¾” across at top, but inside the opening narrows to about 3/16” diameter, apparently to hold a single stem.

Mark on recessed base is Worcester’s puce mark without England and with capitol Z below. There is a crescent at center of mark (rather than a C). Year of making therefore is 1888 (Godden’s #4349). Also impressed with 850 and IZ.

There is an old Y-shaped discolored spider crack to one side, next to the blue flowers; this has brought the price down considerably. The vase could use a bit of cleaning, or just be enjoyed as it is - at 129 years old!
