We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration a RARE VINTAGE LEFTON HAND PAINTED PORCELAIN LADY'S HANDS 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 LARGER of the two we will be offering, measuring an IMPRESSIVE 7" tall and 3 3/4" wide at the base, and is made of QUALITY PORCELAIN, featuring a molded pair of DOUBLE HANDS in a clasping position! We love the FEMININE DETAIL embellishing this piece, including painted deep rose PINK FINGERNAILS, a lovely little painted GOLD RING, a MOLDED CUFF with gilded enhancements and a beautiful single porcelain PINK ROSE with VIOLET FLOWERS surrounded with a cluster of dainty green leaves on the front side of the wrist! The back of the vase has a MOLDED HEART where the two hands join together with a hollow interior, and the inside center of the palm has a hole with which to display flowers or a single bud! The bottom of the vase is marked "LEFTON CHINA", "HAND PAINTED" with the crown insignia mark, and amazingly, we see no major chips or breaks to this piece but it is possible through the years there may be some wear to the floral porcelain edges, but these chips are barely discernible!
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 RARE and FABULOUS VINTAGE LEFTON HAND PAINTED PORCELAIN LADY'S HANDS 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!
