Charming American Belleek Jeweled Cabinet Vase
This porcelain vase was produced in the United States by a Belleek manufacturer before 1920. There is no marking, but we think from the shape it could be Willets or Lenox Belleek. There is an artist's signature within the decoration that appears to be "M. Wakeman”. It is 5 1/4 inches high and the diameter of the base is 2 1/2 inches. You know the saying, "good things come in small packages”? This petite vase is one of those things. The shape is delightful. The ruffled top and the slender neck flare out near the middle to produce a most pleasant shape. The porcelain has that translucent Belleek quality and creamy consistency. The decoration is positively delicious. Tiny roses are scattered around the vase. They are accented with raised gold swirls and raised enamel beading. The quality and intricacy of this ornamentation is professional. It is not uncommon to find American Belleek porcelains without the maker's marks as they were sold to decorators to complete them. This is a charming cabinet vase in excellent condition.
