Antique Early Spode Porcelain Miniature Violet Pot Potpourri Vase and Cover Circa 1820
This rare decorative miniature oval porcelain violet vase was produced by Spode in England during the early 19th century, circa 1820. This miniature delight with pierced lid features extensive gilt decoration, a vibrant scaled cobalt blue ground with hand painted floral sprays. We particularly like the moulded pink and blue flowers at the terminal of each handle. Although made by Josiah Spode to display teeny Violets and Violas, this period treasure could equally serve as a Potpourri (scent jar) for your dolls table.
Please see a similar example on page 15 of The Copeland China Collection by Vega Wilkinson.
Measuring: 3 7/8 (10 cm) by 2 5/8” (6.5 cm). Height 1.75” (4.5 cm).
Condition: This item is in very good condition with no restoration. There is some minor wear to both the gilding on the handles and top of the lid and some natural crazing to the glaze of the lid. There is a very shallow nick to the inner rim of the base.
This will make an excellent display piece, the perfect item for anyone who collects all things Spode or Regency era miniature porcelain.
