When was the last time that you saw one of these large Royal Worcester vases decorated with roses in this manner? For me, this is the only one I've ever seen! This large, bulbous shape lends itself to dramatic decoration with its high relief mouth, ornately embossed collar and beautifully gilded handles. The matte cream porcelain serves as an exquisite backdrop for the lifelike roses and finely detailed foliage, highlighted with gold.
This large piece measures 11 3/4 inches tall, 8 1/4 inches in diameter and 5 inches across the base. The standard printed factory mark included the number 51 in the center that refers to the year 1751 when the Worcester Porcelain Company was founded by Dr. John Wall. From 1867 a letter system was also used to indicate the year of manufacture. Hence the "Y" below the mark would indicate that this piece was manufactured in 1887. The vase remains in excellent overall condition with a small amount of wear to the gold on the high points; insignificant when considering the age of the piece. The vase has been drilled for use as a lamp but could easily be filled to restore it to its original condition.
