Your B & B Host: I'm George Evans, and I've spent the last 20 years importing and exporting antiques and fine design pieces from Europe. I'm a New York City dealer and I have two showrooms in Lambertville, New Jersey.

This week we're bringing you a Pair of Rockingham Vases, beautifully crafted British porcelains from around 1840, just before the famed Rockingham Pottery works closed. These numbered cornucopia-style vases, in an exuberant British interpretation of rococo, are from Glenbrook Antiques, located at 8 Tannery Brook Road in scenic Woodstock, New York.

These vases are meant to hold beautiful flowers, like the craftsmanship glass vase holding peonies (below) in the living room of a Bedford, NY home designed by Jeffrey Bilhuber.

We think our pair of porcelains would look great in your home, too.

For a more in-depth discussion about Rockingham pottery, see my By George! interview with Design2Share. And visit Bond & Bowery for the item detail page on these vases.
