A very large, hand painted maiolica urn in the form of a classical wine krater. The exquisite painted decoration includes two central cartouches, one depicting the Judgement of Paris, the other Venus and Cupid with attendants. This is set against a blue ground decorated with foliate scrolls, masks and shells. The handles are fashioned into winged, leopard like beasts.

It would make a fantastic centrepiece on a table and is designed to be seen in the round.

Italian, late 19th, early 20th century. Unmarked.
