Wedgwood Blue Jasper Dip
Bud Vase 'Poor Maria'
Dated: 1886

The Vase is approx 2.75"/7 cm in diameter and 5"/13 cm tall.
This is a pretty bud vase in Wedgwood's lovely blue. The classical vignettes show 1.) a woman weeping with a dog beside her 2.) a man with a dog 3.) a cupid with a harp 4.) a cupid with a scroll.

The height is 4-7/8". It is marked on the base: "Wedgwood" and "England" separated. There is a impressed date marks “0” for specificity, so I must date it to 1886.

The condition is excellent. There are no chips, no cracks, and no repairs.

    The 'Poor Maria' vase was made for a long time. This one is a early vase, as it was Wedgwood dip...the color is not throughout the vase. If you notice the rim at the top is white. I have this also in the Wedgwood bule. It also comes in yellow, dark blue, green, and red.
