Enamelled decanter/vase? Now a lamp
« on: January 20, 2014, 12:05:57 AM »
Long past any former glory..and still uncleaned internally. Was this a decanter or vase? It has remnants of what looks like ring of red wine. It is heavy..perhaps too heavy for decanter. It is 30cm high. It came in a job lot with some other items of varying age but mostly of real quality, so I thought I'd better check it out.
Any help with ID welcome.
Thank you, David

It looks like a hookah base to me.

 Wow, flyingfree you are so clearly correct.... That accounts for the sturdy base .I just didn't see it.
Thank you ,

it doesn't look that new to me either.  But it's hard to tell from the pics.
Can you do a clear side on shot of the piece please to show the shape and decoration
and one close up of the enamelling please if you have time?
thanks
