This 10 1/4" tall vase was produced around 1925 as indicated on the web site "Porcelain Marks & More". It shows 4 middle-aged men gathered around an older gentleman who appears to be reading to them from a folded piece of parchment. They seem to be smiling and pleased with what they are learning. Done in mostly shades of brown it also has a gold trim around the jagged rim. The handles are divided and the entire piece has a masculine feel to it.
