It is possible that it was for holy water in a church as well. I believe it is from the Florance or Deruta regions of Italy and is beautifully done. It was prominently hanging on the dinning room wall.
It is beautifully hand painted and hand made. You can even see a partial hand print of the artist on the back of the piece. It is quite a large and heavy piece weighing almost 40 pounds. It is also 31" tall x 14 1/4" and is 7 1/2 out from the wall.
There is typical crazing but other than that it is in perfect and mint condition. Please feel free to make reasonable offers. Also, Please be assured that we will pack this item with extreme care.
