This is an English Royal Worcester flower holder vase, shape 1556. The date is the 19th century, circa 1891.
The maker calls the shape a "flower holder" and it was produced in three sizes. The height of this vase is 5 ½" and it is 2 ½" wide at the foot.
The vase is not decorated as the beauty of the vase is the mold or shape. The round foot has raised lines and is colored in shades of yellowish-green and peach with lines of gold trim. There are two handles on the lower body of the vase in the same colors. Towards the top of the vase are raised wavy lines highlighted with gold. The inside of the vase is glazed. The body of the vase is the typical Royal Worcester ivory blush.
The outside rim has one small spot that may be a tiny flake. I tried to zoom in with the camera but couldn't get a photo of the spot. There are no other chips, nicks, cracks or crazing.
It is the Royal Worcester standard printed mark with the crown above and Royal Worcester England below. The Rd No is 180739. The shape number is 1556. There are also some hand enameled letters and numbers. There is an impressed number 23.
