A large, antique European tin glazed majolica or faience vase; well glazed with a subdued palate for majolica. This tall urn features dramatic mythological, winged serpents as handles.
Schiller & Son was known for fine quality earthenware and porcelain, in particular boldly modeled majolica pieces such as this. The quality of their work rivaled pieces done by their Victorian era contemporaries Wedgwood or Minton.
