A real collectible for some is local painted pieces made in Germany. This is a lovely little Cobalt Blue vase with a wonderfully colored painted scene of the Springfield, IL Capitol Building. This is only 4 1/2" tall, and the cobalt is so deep blue that it's almost purple. In addition, there is gold gilt trim around the top edge and also around the painted scene. The colors of both the painted scene and the vase itself are just phenomenal!
This little keepsake is in great shape. On the bottom rim, there are a couple of manufacturing flaws where the edge went in, and there are some glaze slips...smooth to the feel though, not chips. The vase has a high gloss finish! If you love old souvenir memorabilia, you're going to want to add this to your collection. By the way......Illinois, you notice is abbreviated ILL on the vase rather than the more recent IL abbreviation given by the USPS. I think you'll love it! I bought it from a dealer in Southern, IL a couple of years ago.
