We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration a HARD TO FIND VINTAGE LEFTON HAND PAINTED PORCELAIN LADY'S HAND MINIATURE BUD VASE!
This CHARMING VASE is one of two hand vases we will be offering and shown here and will make a FABULOUS DISPLAY commanding a presence in any advanced collection!
These wonderful little miniature hand vases were all the rage during the VICTORIAN ERA, and were reintroduced later in the 1940's and 50's, and are unusual to find with the AMAZING DETAIL you see here! In addition to using them as vases, many collectors use them to display JEWELRY TRINKETS either with the hand standing upright as shown here, or laying prone with the palms up to hold a variety of TINY TREASURES!
This vase is the SMALLER of the two we will be offering, measuring 5" tall and 2 1/4" wide at the base, and is made of QUALITY PORCELAIN, featuring a molded SINGLE HAND! We love the FEMININE DETAIL embellishing this piece, including painted PINK FINGERNAILS, a lovely little painted GOLD RING, a molded RUFFLED CUFF with gilded enhancements and a beautiful single porcelain PINK ROSE with dainty leaves on each side of the wrist! The vase is hollow, and the inside center of the palm has a hole with which to display flowers or a single bud, and the bottom of the vase is marked "LEFTON CHINA", "HAND PAINTED" with the crown insignia mark! Amazingly, we see no chips or breaks to this piece but it is possible through the years there may be some wear to the floral porcelain edges, but they are indiscernible!
An absolute ENCHANTING DISPLAY anywhere you decide to place it, and in addition to it's original purpose as a vase, it could also be used as a TRINKET HOLDER to house your special tiny treasures!
This FABULOUS VINTAGE LEFTON HAND PAINTED PORCELAIN LADY'S HAND MINIATURE BUD VASE would be a WELCOME ADDITION to any collection, and is being offered for the first time on Ruby Lane for your buying consideration-------an absolute SHOWPIECE!
This CHARMING VASE is one of two hand vases we will be offering and shown here, so please check our listings frequently for a treasure you can't resist!
