About this object

The round flask is shaped somewhat like a circular pilgrim flask with a gilt metal neck and stopper at the top. On one side is a girl sitting under a tree with a dog at her feet. There is a bird flying in the sky. On the other side is a boy sitting under a tree playing with a dog. These are all in white on blue. The border of each scene is a rope interlace and the outer edge of the bottle also has a rope interlace.
