Coalport Country Ware Celery Dish

While placing all of the small vases in the bottom of the buffet, I picked up this gem from the inheritance table. I had rescued it from going to the Dutch kringloopwinkel three years ago, since I saw the bone china mark on the stamped bottom.

It is obvious that my mother-in-law used it as a vase, since the inside is stained and has two hairline cracks. I do not think that she knew that this is a celery bowl. Nor did she know that to replace it you would need to shell out $115.00!

To me that was an expensive posey vase!
