Exquisite Antique White Trumpet Barbola Wedding Vase with Gesso floral embellishment. Vases like this were used at weddings, by portrait studios as part of the their "props" and in hotels and fine restaurants. The floral swag has delicate soft colors of pink, cream, very light yellow and green.
This has plenty of wear to the paint and missing paint as shown, it dates to the early 1900's. A rare treat for those of you who love the worn, patina floral baskets. The wood bottom has the name Mrs. Flanery painted on it. A beauty to add to your collection of French, English and American barbola baskets.
