As an early label on the piece indicates, this vase was exhibited at the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893, most likely as a mate to the similar example also in the Museum’s collection (2004.93). The vases are unusually large and bear exquisite decoration. The hummingbirds, flowering branches, and insects on this example are clearly the work of talented English immigrants, formerly employed by Royal Worcester and Crown Derby, who were hired by the Greenwood firm to decorate its porcelains.
