  • Pattern: Especially For You
  • Made in Taiwan for FTD
  • Vintage: 1993
  • Details: This is a very sweet ceramic vase.  It is white porcelain with embossed detailing of a mother and baby's hands surrounded by roses and lilies in white and pink.  It has a high shine glaze but interestingly, the pink areas are unglazed giving it a different texture.  There are large leaves in the background with large veining, the roses and lilies are very detailed.  The shape is highly unusual, it is oval but the rim is uneven, almost like it's cracked around the rim.   This one retains its original sticker which reads: "Especially For You FTD, Made in Taiwan"  It also has a small white sticker that reads: "1993 FTD".  Because it doesn't have a drainage hole it can be used as a cachepot or a planter with stones on the bottom.  This is a great gift for Mother's Day,  for Mom's Birthday, Daughter's Birthday or for a Baby Shower.

FTDA, known as 'Florists Telegraph Delivery Association' (FTDA aka FTD) was founded in 1910 when a group of 13 American retail florists agreed to exchange orders for out-of-town deliveries. They began telegraphing orders to each other from different states because flowers didn't always last the long train trips required for delivery in far away places. The gold Mercury Man logo was first used by FTD in 1914, he is known as the god “Hermes” , messenger to Zeus.  He is also referred to as the Roman god, “Mercury” who traveled extensively, delivering important mail from one sender to another.  In 1923 a British unit of FTD was formed in response to the success of the network in America.  In 1946 International Telegraph Florists was established between FTD, the FTD British Unit and Europe's floral clearinghouse Fleurop, they became "Interflora".  By 1965, they expanded to include international transactions, and the company was renamed “Florists’ Transworld Delivery”, to reflect its growing worldwide presence and its partnership with Interflora.   Today they have grown to be the largest flower delivery network, associated with over 58,000 affiliated flower shops in over 140 countries.   Interflora is now a subsidiary of FTD Companies, acquired in 2006.
