Grandma Westwood had a vase just like this one in Westwood Cottage. My sister has it in Vancouver. I found this one at the local Nearly New for .50 cents! So, of course I took it home. It made my day.
After some reasearch I found that it is a piece of Royal Copley China.
The Spaulding China Company in Ohio, US made many pottery items including figurines, vases and planters from 1942-1957.
Now, having an interest in pottery and being a collector of vintage glassware and other interesting things I have been on the lookout for other Royal Copley pieces. The collection is growing slowly, but the hunt is so much fun!
