The vase features scenes from village life surrounded by floral motifs throughout. The vase carries the Barbour International S.P. Co. mark with the Dutch windmill set between two pipes and the number 3338, dating this to 1892-1898.
Repousse is working with malleable metal and shaping it by hammering designs from the reverse side, thus creating low relief patterns.
