Italian Hand-Painted Majolica Covered Urn

fourth quarter 19th century, the polychrome-decorated urn supported on a base molded with three dolphins, the main body featuring peasants toiling in a field with Mount Vesuvius on one side and Middle Eastern traders with their camels on the other, the leaf-molded, scrolled handles and cover decorated with putti.
h. 38", w. 20", d. 12"


Two putti on handles have had all four legs broken and reattached, but they are original. It appears the base was separated from the top and it has been repaired above dolphins on base. Some typical minor glaze losses to base, right above foot.
