Oriental Vase

Imported oriental white ceramic flower vase, with transfer-printed design in blue, showing human figures and animals. This was one of at least three small imported oriental vases discarded, in 1908, after the death of Mary Everett, along with old and worn crockery. They may have been discarded intact. Their presence could imply that Mary’s daughters did not share her taste. The vases may have arrived at the port of Felixstowe, immediately next to Falkenham.

  2. It makes me wonder if the daughters were having bad memories of their mother, judging by the way they discarded her belongings. Some of them seem to be quite valuable. To get rid of the broken stuff is understandable but one could wonder why they didn’t keep the items which were in good shape, or tried to sell or give them away. Either they weren’t very sentimental or they had little respect for the previous owner of these objects…
