My grandmother gave this Royal Wettina vase to me when I was a young married, as I’d always admired it so much. I kept it carefully displayed on a shelf and never used it as an actual vase. Back in the day before you could “Google” something on the Net I often wondered what the vase was worth, as I do know it came over with HER mother from Germany.
I have seen a few of these on the Net now and they seem to be worth somewhere between one and a few hundred….not that I’d ever part with it though.
The flowers are hand painted, it seems …or at least you can feel the raised edges of the painted portions. The bottom of the vase says RH Royal Wettina Made in Austria
For this post I did pick a few flowers for the vase…I thought I’d better hurry up before all of the summer flowers are done blooming.
