This is an English Royal Worcester vase, shape 1507, a shape that the maker terms one of their rare shapes. The date is the 19th century, circa 1891.
The shape is called a "coral handled vase" and was produced in five different sizes. In appearance it looks like a pitcher, ewer or jug, but the maker calls it a vase. It is 4 5/8" high and 3" wide at the belly. The handle is made to represent a piece of coral, and is gilded in gold. Additional little pieces of coral are around the neck and below the rim of the mouth. The body is bulbous and lobed with hand painted flowers and blue leaves outlined in gold. There are red and yellow daisies, yellow sunflowers and some pretty pink blossoms; the flowers are outlined in gold also.
The ground is the typical Royal Worcester blush ivory with some shading of peach tones. The inside of the vase is glazed.
There are no nicks, chips, cracks or crazing. There is some wear to the gold trim that covers the coral pieces around the neck.
It is the Royal Worcester standard printed mark with the crown above and Royal Worcester England below. The Rd No is 167140. The shape number is 1507. There are also some hand enameled letters and numbers.
