This item was part of my late Dad’s estate. It is a two-handled vase, urn, or decanter (really not sure) with a lid. It is cobalt blue with white and a multitude of colors accented with gilt gold swirled trim and tiny, white moriage along the straight lines on either side of the oval portrait and the oval floral design. The vase/urn/decanter WITHOUT the lid is about 11 3/4 high. WITH the lid it is about 13 3/4 high. The length of the lid is about 3 1/8. The circumference of this item around the thickest part is 15 3/4. The base has a diameter of 2 7/8. The opening to the vase/urn/decanter is 3 7/16″ in diameter and has 4 “petals or ruffles. There is an oval portrait of a woman on one side and an oval floral design on the other. I especially like the aqua blue floral trim around the neck of this piece. The same goes with the unmarked bottom (photo 8). There is a small depression, covered in glaze. The inside edge of the lid has some tiny chips, but they are hard to see (photo 11). I do not know if it is Victorian, French, German, Austrian, or what. My Dad knew much more than I do. Please view all photos as they are part of the description and they do NOT do this piece justice. It is much more vibrant and stunning in person, ask questions, and thanks for looking. Additional photos provided upon request. I wish I could have included more photos as this is so beautiful. If anyone knows anything about this piece, please share with me. I looked online but could not find one remotely similar to it with a lid and two handles.
