This fine bone china piece was originally sold to hold people's cigarettes as it was customary for the host to offer their guests a cigarette. How times have changed! Now you can use this to hold your business cards, matchsticks, a couple of pens or whatever works for you.
This was made by Royal Worcester from England. The pattern is called Woodland and features a beautiful spray of flowers that have a blue tint to them. On the back is one simple little flower that is yellow with blue tinted leaves. The rim has a gold band.
The bottom is stamped and we took a close up of it that you can see in the photos.

The holder measures approximately 2 1/2 inches and the base is approximately 2 1/2 inches long by 1 1/4 inches wide.
This piece is in excellent condition, no chips, cracks or crazing. There is minimal wear on the bottom.
