wud imagine this to be for a dressing table possibly, in view of the enamelled decoration - but heavens, I've been known to be wrong a million times.
Very attractive actually - what appears to be an iridescence over clear glass, giving a sort of pinkish hue. Height 9.25 cms. and 7 cms. wide. the decoration is is enamelled in gold, red and green colours - quite thickly. No pontil as such, as you can see, but a sort of mold pressed circular ring thingy on the base. Quite crudely made really - the neck for example varies in thickness from 2mm to 4mm, and the lid has a very poor fit. I have no idea of country of origin or date -but if pushed might be tempted to say eastern European around 1930 ish. Wud appreciate any ideas or interest. thanks Paul S.
