The soft green and pink on this spill vase add to the endearing subject of two little boys playing outside with their dog. However, they are really dressed up in their knee pants and ruffles to be playing! The vase, measuring 5” wide, 5 ½” tall and 2 ¼” deep, is in wonderful condition. None of the petals on the flowers, ruffles or applied “rufflely” greenery on the ground is chipped; there may be one missing leaf up near the top of the tree trunk, but it’s hard to tell if the piece was made that way or if there is something missing. The boys and the dog have a high gloss glaze on them with gold highlights, but the tree and the ground appear to be unglazed. The piece does have a maker’s mark on the bottom, but it’s hard to read and I wasn’t able to find any clues as to help find who made it or where. There isn’t a country of origin anywhere on the vase that I can find. This is an unusual piece in that it doesn’t have the strong colors of so many of the spill vases that were made years ago.
