This auction is for a BRAND NEW with its original Gift Box, Royal Albert Basketweave Cameo Vase. It matches the Old Country Roses China pattern. Never used. It has been sitting in its Gift Box ever since I got it. Therefore it is in MINT condition.
You can own this lovely piece of Basketweave Cameo Vase for just US$65.
This vase was bought directly from the Royal Albert factory. Since this is a Brand New piece, there is no crack, chip, broken spot anywhere. There is also no evidence of restoration work done either. This vase is significantly bigger than the rest of the Old Country Roses vases. Excellent FIRST QUALITY Porcelain with not a scratch through the backstamp or anywhere else on its pristine, white surface. As the name states, it has a Basketweave design on its body. On 2 sides, there is an embossed white rose motif that is in a heart shape. In the middle of the heart shaped is the familiar English Pink, Red and Yellow Tea Roses in full bloom. Entertwining the tea roses are vibrant, green foliage. The inside of this vase itself is smooth. The Neck and Foot is trimmed with 22K Gold rope design. Overall, a very high quality product as you would have expected from the Royal Albert company. Please note that this is the newer, made-in-China item. It does have a bit of weight to it. So, overseas buyer, please expect the postage to cost some.
Absolutely stunning to add to your Old Country Roses collection. Reminiscent of the old English country charm that has been connected to this world-famous design since 1894! A company rooted in a tradition of excellence, Royal Albert has meticulously crafted the Basketweave and Roses designs on the body of this vase, superbly!
The backstamp showed the date as 1962. Please note that this is the year that the 'Old Country Roses' china pattern was copyrighted by the Royal Albert company. Therefore, all of their ORIGINAL product now bears that stamp. Nevertheless, this is an authentic Vase in the Basketweave pattern that was produced under the newer 'Giftable' production in one of the Royal Albert Asian factories in CHINA.
This gorgeous Old Country Roses Basketewave Vase approximately measures:
* a little less than 30cm (a little less than 12") tall from top to bottom;
