A statement piece - very much different - as an ornament for display or as a functional vase for fresh or dried flowers (looks amazing with long, gnarled, twisted twigs protruding out of it). Eye catching stood solitarily on a shelf or between two columns of books! Weighty substantial and strong - well made - almost spherical in shape - highly glazed dark brown with picture of bare trees on one section. Generally in good condition apart from a tiny, unnoticeable mark on its rim. Holds water, if required. Dimensions: 24cm (9.5 inches) tall - 70cm (27.5 inches) circumference at widest point. I can meet firm buyer at any mutually convenient London location or item can be courier delivered anywhere U.K. - buyer to cover delivery cost, please.
