Beautiful and very decorative Antique Hand Painted Posy Ring, a special vase shape designed to be able to display delicate violets, pansies, small roses or other smaller flowers to their best advantage. It's rare to find one of these this pretty, no doubt painted by a "lady" with the sweet blossoms, the three little feet have coin gold on them, the design is a garland of soft petal pink wild roses or wild flowers. Signed M H on one side.
A beauty to display with your antique porcelains, but especially charming when filled with little flowers, the small channel holds the water, the two sides give the diminiature flowers the support they need to look their very best. In very good condition, there are three spots on the bottom where the final glaze didn't take, this is where the piece sat on the "cones" in the kiln. Measures 7-1/2" x6-1.4" x 2".
