This small compote measures 7" in diameter and 6 1/2" tall. The bowl has carving around the edge. At one time there were alabaster birds which sat on the edge. The hole for the pegs have been filled. What is unusual about this compote is the base. There is a square pad with three cupids around the pedestal. Most have dolphins. The bowl has a slight stain in the bowl. There is a crack on the square base. This appears to be part of the alabaster and is quite tight and stable. It has not been broken. This is quite decorative.
