Taken from an exquisite Victorian blue transfer piece that Emma Bridgewater acquired last year, this vase has two handles, which give it the appearance of an urn, however the generosity and depth used in the design obviously take their style from Emma and her family of shapes. Any type of floral arrangement would look simply lovely sitting in this urn which has been heavily decorated with the floral wallpaper pattern of blues on white. The wallpaper from which this design came is reminiscent of that which was so popular during the Victorian era. Let your eyes cascade across the surface of this urn to behold the seemingly random design, which becomes the design itself!
Use this piece alone, on a mantle, or upon a pedestal stand. Place it, full of freshly picked wildflowers, in the center of your kitchen table. Roll hand towels to store in this beautiful urn, right next to the guest soap in the bathroom. This piece, while bold, is terrifically understated and will look grand, regardless of where you place it. Other lovely designs are Black Toast and Marmalade, which provides a nice contrast in white and black design, and Blue Skies, which bears the nice blue hues found on the blue wallpaper urn.
