Here is a four-inch-tall vase used for a small flower bouquet or perhaps for holding wooden sticks (or spills) near the hearth that one could use to light a pipe. It is decorated in two ground colors, light green and a beige-orange, with a rectangular reserve on one side containing a bouquet of colorful flowers and with classical-styled gilt arabesques on the back. No chips, but the raised band around the waist shows gilt wear, and there are a couple of very faint hairlines in the bottom. Very typical of Victorian porcelain, the type of thing that would have been found in most homes of the period.
