Diana ring posy vases

Diana ring posy vasesDiana ring posy vases
made in Sydney, Australia c. 1950s

Posy vases were a big thing in the 50s…a vase just deep enough for a single, small flower to float in water, in a ring arrangement that made the posy self-supporting. I have used gum sprigs [with leaves, gum nuts and flowers] in these bowls and the result is quite spectacular.

The first two vases are oval in shape: the third is circular. All three have the beautiful pinks and crimsons so associated with the 50s_ and the middle vase has an incised flannel flower pattern [regular readers will recognise that pattern from a couple of previous posts.]

Regular readers will also be aware of my great love for all things Diana – especially the ‘Australiana’ green and brown coloured pottery. It is with some reluctance that I offer these beautiful vases for sale…I have retained the same shapes/patterns in the green and brown glaze in my collection, and so have to let these ones go.

The three vases are for sale: $AUD75

    • i think posy vases from the 50s are everywhere, but perhaps Diana didn’t export to the US? and perhaps you were too young to have seen the posy case phenomenon? that’s what i ascribe to- i would have hated them if they were actually a part of my era.
