The vase is 6 1/4" high and 3" wide at the bottom.

The shape has a round lower belly and a long stick neck, perfect for use as a bud vase for a shorter stemmed flower.

Flowers and leaves are hand painted on the belly and neck and outlined in gold; there are some blue daisies with yellow center, some purple flowers, some pink blossoms and some small red buds.
The outside is the typical Royal Worcester ivory blush with some shading. The interior of the vase is glazed.
There is a mold line down each side of the vase.
There are no nicks, chips, cracks or crazing. There is minimal wear to the gold trim.
