Item: Posy Vase Description: Sprung legs Hallmark: London
1875 by William Neal Dimensions: 120mm long; 70 grams
fantastic Victorian posy vase in superb condition. The quality of this rare
piece is outstanding. The vase is superbly engraved and decorated with bead
mounts around the top rim and central bands. There are chain drapes around
the top, but the most remarkable feature of this vase are the three tripod
legs. The legs can be folded away when not in use and are secured in place
by an umbrella which when pulled against its' spring will release the three
legs - each of which is individually sprung.
The optional legs allow this vase to be used for carrying
posies and then can stand on a table to display the flowers. The flowers are
held in place by a split pin that can be pushed in from both sides.
