Mystery VTT

Today I am asking for some help! On a recent visit to Goodwill, I came across this lovely item.

What is it?? Is it a vase? Not sure.

The marking on the bottom says -

James Kent
Staffordshire
Made in England

Okay, so I knew it was something good. But what is it?

So you can see it looks like it might be a small vase.

If anyone can shed some light on this lovely piece, I would appreciate it.

Please be sure to stop by Coloradolady's blog and visit the other great Vintage Thingies :-)

Pretty sure it's a vase...very unique for sure. You can google all the printing on the bottom of it and that may tell you what it is for sure.
Warmly,
Deb :)

Jocelyn, I hope somebody comes along and solves the mystery! Whatever it is, it's gorgeous and would look lovely with flowers in it or sitting on a shelf!
Happy VTT!

At first, I thought it might hold decorative eggs, but I think a vase once I saw the top view, it is truly beautiful, and what a great price...love it when that happens. Have a great VTT!

I don't think it looks like a vase, but I don't know what else it could be.

I have a double vase that is Roseville. I think that's what this is. Great collectible, great deal!

Wow, that's stunning! At first I thought a double egg cup but then I saw the top view and change my vote to vase as well. It's official, it's a vase, lol! Happy VTT!

Vonlipi said...

First of all: Great find! i also thinks it's a vase...Happy VTT!

although you could use it for a vase, it is in fact a double egg holder. they are used to serve soft boiled eggs...it is rare to see one in the states, as there are popular in england, hence the marking on the bottom ...

i've seen ones turned into gorgeous pin cushions...

lucky you...i've been looking for a vintage beauty for years...

My first thoughts were egg cups, but the cup part may be too large for eggs. I would use it however you want to. Flowers would look lovely in it. Congratulations, Jocelyn, on a terrific treasure and buy! Blessings and love, Vicki

Deborah said...

I have no idea what it is but looks to me like you have an excellent goodwill. Good prices and good stuff :) Happy VTT!

It is beautiful. I have no idea what the original purpose was but you can use it however you want and if someone says it is supposed to be something else just tell them you are re-purposing it!
