Description
This delightful vase is from the revered silversmith Henry Matthews and dates to just before the end of the 19th Century and the grand Victorian period. Hallmarked 1899 it was of course assayed in Birmingham. The Bristol Blue liner is complete, chip free and made deliberately thick and dense to keep the posy vase upright even with a relatively large bouquet onboard. A real gem with many uses beyond just a posy vase; spill vase, pen or pencil holder, paintbrush holder, table decoration, joss stick holder, etc.
