This is a unique item. I believe it is a knife holder with a metal carrying handle. The total height is 9 1/8 inches tall and the base is 5 1/2 inches across. There is a shallow chip on the bottom and wear to some of the gold gilt glaze. Both of these conditions are shown in the photographs. I have not attempted to disassemble it and would not reccommend trying. The makers mark RPM is impressed on the bottom.
Please double click on the largest photograph to see enlarged detail. It will enable you to closely inspect each image.
