A Vauxhall trumpet shaped vase tapering to a diameter of 4.5cm, decorated with European flowers and insects.  "Polychrome printed"  in a technique peculiar to the factory.  It involved the overglaze printing of two or more colors in outline, most often brown, pink or sepia, which were then filled in with hand-painted coloring.  For more information see English Ceramic Circle publication, Ceramics of Vauxhall 2007....
