This gorgeous vase is 6-1/2" high. The central hand painted vignette shows a woman painting a picture while her swain hold a palette for her and a cupid dances between them. The vase is encrusted with flowers and fruit. At its base are 3 putti. The vase has many round piercings along its shoulder, so it may have been a potpourri. There is no evidence that it ever had a cover.
The mark is blue crossed lines enclosing a "T", used by Carl Thieme of Potschappel c 1888.
This vase is not perfect. There are many chips to the delicate flowers. I have tried to photograph the worst for you. One putto has a missing foot. There are no cracks or chips to the body of the vase. It displays very well.
