An antique majolica whimsical pin or ring tray, it's Austrian and it dates c1900. It's a body of a woman with a fish or bird head that has a trunk?. I've never seen one of these before so it must be an uncommon majolica item. There is also a large blue hat and maybe a fish in the right hand? The unusual figure sits on a pond lily leaf, it measures 4 1/2" x 3 1/2" x 3 1/4" and is in good condition with no chips or cracks. The line at the ankle is in my opinion a manufacturing imperfection or it may even be part of the design. A few spots that feel a little ruff to the touch on the rim. Marked as shown with numbers.
