Absolutely wonderful majolica figural vase. This whole piece will make you smile. Two adorable little boys playing on a fallen tree log with the trunk of the tree as a vase. The deep earthy colors are so bright and vivid. The expressions on the faces of the two little boys tell you that they are up to no good.
The piece measures approximately 11" X 8" x 9 1/2" and marked on the base or the impressed #'s 14 & 448 & the letter B. In overall great Antique condition. There is a faint old hairline about 3 1/2" on the back inside of the vase that does not go thru, and can not be seen on the outside, an old small ding about 1/4" X 3/16" on the back of the vase that has aged and does not stand out, and years ago I had a professional repair done to the neck of the little boy with the knit hat but I can't tell where it was. I'll let the pictures tell the rest of the story..
This is truly an unusual wonderful piece of old majolica.
