Antique Cream White Parian Porcelain Hand Vase with decorative botanicals of leaves and berries, the Holly. Oh, this is a find! Beautifully designed, and then fired to fine bisque quality, it's perfect for the holidays and winter. Little Victorian hand vases like this were so beloved and collected in the late 1800's, and made in England, France, and the United States.
From a collector, as charming as this is, it has been carefully repaired long ago, after someone was so enamored with it that they tried to reach it on a high mantel, no doubt. Not for the perfectionist, but this design is so rare to find that I bought it knowing it will be loved. Please look at the photos to see the damage and repair, it is not too noticeable, but it is there. It is most noticeable on the inside of the "fan" part at the top.
