  • Made in China
  • Not Vintage: 2001
  • Details: This is a beautiful ceramic vase, with large pastel florals in pink and yellow and bright green leaves.  The bottom is very original, it has a ring of blue and white stripes with a green foot.  It was designed by Tracy Potter exclusively for FTD for Mother’s Day 2001 and was sold with a roses arrangement.  The bottom is stamped:  “Designed Exclusively for FTD by Tracy Porter” it has the Gold Mercury Man logo and it’s signed by Tracy Porter.  Great gift for an FTD collector, but even if you’re not, this is a very pretty vase and perfect for Spring bouquets.  Great for shabby chic decor!
  • Material: Ceramic
  • Dimensions:  10.0 inches Tall, 5.0 inches in Diameter (top opening), 5.25 in Diameter (bottom foot). 
  • Condition:  Used.  Good Condition.  There are minor chips on the bottom, one larger than the rest, not very noticeable.  There is also lots of crazing all over, it looks almost intentional, perhaps to make it look older? We’re unsure, it’s just not old enough to have created all the crazing naturally, but we’re not experts.  PLEASE REVIEW ALL PICTURES BEFORE PURCHASING. ALL SALES FINAL.  Please remember these are VINTAGE and ANTIQUE items, they are NOT new. Every effort has been made to show any scratches, wear and tear and imperfections. 
  • Shipping is included, (continental US only), unless otherwise noted.  AK, HI and International shoppers will see additional shipping fees based on your location.

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.
