This conical shaped vase has a patchwork squares, textile effect. I stiched textiles including silk, linen, corduroy and embellishments such as rik-rak and embroidery. There are five little buttons down the back at the seam as if to fasten the vase up. The interior is glazed and the braid effect trim around the top and buttons are glazed and have a mother-of-pearl lustre to catch the light. There are three sprigged buttons on the base. The vase is 18cm tall, the base is 10.5cm wide and the aperture is 5cm wide.
