The hollow potted castle is mounted on a long oval shaped base molded in relief with swirl patterning with a raised molded banner reading BALMORAL CASTLE with remnants of gilding to the raised elements. The castle itself is well modelled in slightly compressed form with raised tower sections with a smaller tower next to the entrance to one end with a path leading to the door. Higher sections with protruding frontage are located to the left of the entrance with molded windows and turrets with an open tower to one end, probably for spills. The castle is hand painted in orange/pink tones with highlighted elements in contrasting colored enamels. The castle is not marked.
From the extensive private collection of a gentleman of pastille burners and associated wears
In good condition with natural firing faults to the end sides of the end elevations which certainly do not detract.
