This is an English hard paste porcelain vase dating to the 19th century, circa 1883 to 1891. The maker is Pointon & Co Ltd, part of the Norfolk Street Works in Hanley, one of the Staffordshire Potteries and formerly known as R. G. Scrivener & Co. Pointon made china or porcelain objects, not pottery; earthenware was produced when the company was known as Scrivener.
The vase is 6 1/2" high and 5" wide at the belly.
The shape has a large round belly and a neck with side handles. The decoration is hand enameled in different colors of gold, including white gold to represent a silver color. The belly shows a decoration of long stems, leaves and daisy type of flowers. There is a larger butterfly on the belly and a smaller butterfly on the neck.
The handles and neck are trimmed in gold. There is a gold pattern on the inner rim of the mouth.
The exterior of the vase is a cream colored ground. The interior of the vase is glazed white.
The bottom of the vase has a red store over glaze decorating mark, meaning the vase was decorated for this store exclusively, and it reads as "Davis Collamore & Co 921 Broadway Cor 21st Streets New York. The maker's mark is over the glaze and reads as "Pointons Stoke On Trent."
There are no chips, nicks or cracks.
