This wonderful miniature, toy size trumpet shape vase was produced in England during the early 19th century, circa 1802 to 1813. The blue and white transfer printed Chinoiserie pattern is known at the ‘Curling Palm’ and features pagodas, bridges and Chinese figures under swaying curling leaf palm trees. The pattern was used by a number of manufactures of the period, including Job Ridgway, see reference below. The vase was most likely produced for a child, making its survival even more impressive.
