The mark puts it manufacture at c1907, it is in good condition and a very handsome shape measuring 30cm wide and 8.5cm high.


Planted with new season's violas in a inner pot, which will flower throughout summer.


All our plants are accompanied with detailed care instructions and packed up carefully in compostable recycled boxes packed with straw and shipped with an overnight courier service.


Our potted plants make lovely sustainable gifts as nothing is single use or thrown away - the bowl can be used for multiple purposes and the violas can be re- planted outdoors or into a bigger pot if necessary. Each pot comes with a personalised gift card and the option of our Cambridge Imprint wrapping paper and vintage velvet ribbon.
