About this object

These ornamental pottery pieces have stylized landscapes on the side in red, blue and white. These extend over the corners. The rest of the pieces have a dark blue ground with fruit in red and leaves in white and gold. The orante handles and the crown-like top were once gilded. At one time were made into lamps with a brass base. This is the "Old School House" pattern.
