vintage & antique
All hand painted and hand glazed. You can see brush strokes in the glaze. Very well made and a rather heavy 2 1/2 pounds. Oval shape 8 1/2 by 7. The bottom is 3 1/2 high without the lid.
Probably late 19th century as it is marked Italy, not "made in" but we aren't sure.
Marked 466 ITALY in black. Gold crown stamp over a blue N.
Condition: Very excellent. Gold wear and the sides of the pear are worn as would be expected. No damage or repairs or crazing.
